Managing Food Safety: Limitations of Reheating as an On-site Correction Mobile App
The Managing Food Safety: Limitations of Reheating as an On-site Correction mobile app offers a helpful set of guidelines for food service establishments to follow when dealing with reheating food.
How does it work?
The app is designed to prevent food-borne illnesses related to reheating cooked foods on the stove, in the oven or using a microwave the wrong way.
Whether or not cooked foods can be safety reheated depends on a number of factors. This includes how long the food was in the ""danger zone"" prior to being stored in the refrigerator or freezer, temperature it was stored at, number of days since it was cooked and how much it was handled. Using this checklist can help determine if it is a good idea to reheat foods after cooking and cooling them down, or if it would just be safer to throw them out.
