Health Tip: Reheat Food Safely

(HealthDay News) -- Leftovers are a great way to enjoy a healthy, easy meal that you've already spent time to prepare. But, thorough reheating is important to avoid food poisoning.

The website advises:

  • Only reheat and eat leftovers that were stored properly, within two hours of cooking.
  • Do not use a slow cooker to reheat food.
  • When reheating in a microwave, make sure your food is covered and is evenly distributed.
  • Use a food thermometer to make sure food is re-heated to 165 degrees.
