Food Storage Times

Today I was doing some research¬†to see exactly how long cooked chicken could be stored in the refrigerator, and I came across a convenient¬†little PDF¬†provided by the FDA. I’d like to share it with you for easy reference, and to keep it for myself for future use. Honestly, half the reason I started this site was to have a handy little repertoire of information for myself. ūüėČ

Hopefully it can be of some use to you! Although, I think their numbers may fall a touch on the conservative side by a day or two. However, that’s just my personal opinion.

Link to the PDF found here.
