Just how cold does your food have to be to keep it safe? That’s a very good question that every restaurant has to deal with on a daily basis. On some level, it might be good for you to follow the restaurant standards. Here’s what the U.S. Department of Agriculture says about basic refrigeration: “Refrigerators must have a temperature below 40 degrees Fahrenheit. At this temperature bacteria may still reproduce, but very slowly, therefore food can only be stored in a refrigerator for a couple of days before it must be thrown away. Meat products should be kept on the bottom shelf to prevent juices dripping onto other items.”
What about freezing foods? The USDA says, “Bacteria is dormant in frozen foods. However, the longer food is kept in the freezer the more likely it is to develop freezer burn, which means the quality deteriorates. Food should be stored on shelves at least 6 inches away from the floor so that it can be mopped easily without touching the food. Keep all cleaning agents separate from food.”
Would you even know what temperature your fridge is operating at? It might be helpful to check. When your refrigerator can no longer keep ice cream frozen or veggies crisp then it might be time to replace that unit. Thanks to all the amazing consumer reviews available online, shopping for a refrigerator won’t be that complicated. Find the brand that you like and see how it stacks up with the others based on what actual customers have to say. Once the selection has been made you have to contend with getting rid of the old fridge. That’s where Junk King San Diego comes into play.

“These guys are top notch! I needed a huge pile of mixed garbage (old furniture, construction waste, scrap metal, etc.) hauled off of a residential remodel job in Oceanside,” writes a satisfied customer. “They came out to estimate the load, gave me a price on the spot and hauled my junk away in minutes. Excellent service and speed!”
Michele from San Mateo had another positive experience with Junk King. “Wow! These guys are great. They showed up at the office with three guys and loaded the truck (which was a half load) in about 15 minutes. They even swept the area and took the excess trash with them. I’ve worked here 7 years and that’s the cleanest I’ve seen it! They were quick, professional and did an excellent job.”
