Shelf Stable Foods
Shelf Stable foods are usually safe unless the can or packaging has been damaged. Once opened though, these foods need to be stored in tightly closed containers. Some of these foods need to be refrigerated after opening.
Frozen foods should always be placed in the shopping cart last, right before check-out, and be taken directly home and placed in the freezer.
Refrigerated foods should be kept at a constant temperature to maintain the quality.
Bakery items that contain frostings made of cream cheese, whipped cream, eggs, custards etc. should be kept refrigerated. However, plain bread products can remain at room temperature, but eventually they will mold and become unsafe to eat.
