Refrigerator Safety Around Holiday's Important

With all of the eating, celebrating, and making merry in the holiday season, one area that often gets overlooked is your refrigerator. While taking care of your refrigerator may seem like an afterthought, a few simple tips can help take care of not only your refrigerator but also the food and drink that sits inside of it. Nathan Hamm, a wellness service manager with Saint Anthony Medical Center in Rockford says too much food can be a bad thing.


Hamm also warns against reheating food multiple times, as well as too many times of reheating, can create foodborne illnesses. 



Hamm says while it may seem like an afterthought, washing hands when switching between foods can help with illness as well.
