Correspondingly, what is the proper temperature for a refrigerator?
is 45 degrees cold enough for a refrigerator? The USDA says refrigeration temperature should be 40°F (4.4°C) or below. If food is in there at a higher temperature (such as the 43-45°F the question mentions), for longer than 2 hours, and they're saying the food isn't safe.
Keeping this in view, how often should fridge and freezer temperatures be taken?
To ask staff to check the temperature twice a day and write down a single temperature is a token gesture. The standards are even written around the 2 hour / 4 hour rules. At the very least it should be every 2 hours. A minimum/maximum thermometer should be the very least they are expected to use.
What is the correct storage location and temperature range for each type of food?
Most fresh foods must be stored in the refrigerator to delay their deterioration and decomposition. The most basic rule must be always followed: store raw products below, never above, your cooked or ready-to-eat products. Keep foods 4°C (39°F) or colder, the safe temperature for refrigerated storage.
