Most of us were taught that the fridge is the best place to store food. However, there are some foods that actually do better when stored outside of the fridge.
Bacteria that are harmful to humans are hiding in your kitchen, and the way you store your food might be putting your family at risk. Some goods demand refrigeration at all times, while others should be kept outside the refrigerator and risk becoming ruined or inedible. Knowing which foods to refrigerate and which to store on the counter is important for your safety and the safety of your loved ones.
