Food Protection During a Power Outage

The Niagara County Department of Health's Environmental Division often responds to public inquiries regarding protection and disposal of refrigerated and frozen foods during prolonged power outages. If the power is out for more than two hours, the food in your refrigerator and/or freezer may not be safe to eat. A good rule of thumb is “if in doubt, throw it out”.
