What is food safety temperatures?

Definition

When storing your food, consider the temperatures your items will experience. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, food should be stored at temperatures between 0F and 140F. Any meat, poultry, or other perishable food should be kept at the lowest coldest part of your fridge, with the door open, and away from any heat sources. The temperatures below which food will not spoil are considered its safe storage or food safety temperatures. These temperatures will ensure that you will have food safe from harmful bacteria and other microbes. However, these internal temperatures are not the same for all foods. Instead, the temperatures at which a particular food will not spoil are different for almost every food.
