Food and water: When in doubt, throw it out

FOOD

Do NOT depend on smell or taste to determine safety of foods.

Throw out any meat, chicken, seafood or dairy product, raw or uncooked, that isn’t at 40 degrees or below (look for visible ice crystals).

Use all perishable foods before shelf-stable ones.

Cook perishable proteins — meats, eggs and poultry — first.

Even cooked meat must stay cold and is good for only three to four days after thawing, and under refrigeration.

Throw out any raw or cooked meat or dairy food that has been sitting at 40 degrees or above more than two hours. If it’s 90 degrees or more outside, 1 hour is the limit on leaving foods out.

Keep hands and preparation surfaces clean.

Use bleach wipes or white vinegar to keep counters and surfaces clean; water from the tap may contaminate surfaces.

Use only bottled water for washing food, hands, surfaces and utensils.

WHAT WILL KEEP

These foods will keep at least two weeks without power:

Condiments

  • Vinaigrette salad dressings — but no creamy ones
  • Ketchup
  • Mustard
  • Relishes, pickles and chutney
  • Foil packs of mayonnaise
  • Steak sauces, including Worcestershire, A-1 and HP
  • Tabasco and any commercially bottled hot sauce made with vinegar
  • Barbecue sauces
  • Jellies, jams and syrups

    Cereals and grains

  • Boxed cereals
  • Flours
  • Rice, barley, pastas, oats, seeds
  • Cake mixes
  • Dry pet foods

    Unopened foods

  • Unopened cans, bags, boxes, jars and pouches (these are safe UNLESS the boxes get wet or cans are dented)

    Other foods that are safe

  • Peanut butter
  • Processed or hard cheeses, or cheese spreads not from the refrigerated case
  • Honey
  • Most oils (some oils such as sesame, walnut oil or peanut oils may go rancid and taste off in high heat, but they are safe)
  • Spices (check for weevils; the taste quality will be affected after storage in high heat)
  • Baking goods: Nuts, candied fruits, bagged coconut, chocolate or fruit syrups, chocolate bars or chips, nuts
  • Potatoes, carrots, onions and turnips generally will last at room temperatures (discard if wet)

    What to throw out

    These foods must be thrown out if your refrigerator is off longer than four hours, or if your freezer has been off for more than 48 hours (only 24 hours for a half-full freezer):

  • All fresh meats, chicken or seafood
  • Any cured meats — hot dogs, lunch meats, ham, bacon (shelf-stable bacon is OK)
  • All dairy products and all foods that contain them (yogurt, cottage cheese, semi-soft and soft cheese, grated cheese, any milk products)
  • Opened jars of mayonnaise
  • Eggs that have been at room temperaturemore than 4 hours
  • Egg substitutes
  • Garlic or tomatoes packed in oil

    Use with caution up to 2 days:

  • Frozen fruits and frozen vegetables with no sauces will keep up to 48 hours in a cooler.
  • Eggs, uncracked, kept in cooler

    Important: Foods that are labeled kosher, cured, natural or organic have nothing to do with how long a food lasts. Do NOT use those labels as a safety gauge.

    WATER

    Don’t ration.

    Drink as much as you need. Look for more water later.

    Treat opened bottles of water as food: Bacteria will grow in it if contaminated; don’t reuse plastic bottles. Open and use it quickly or chill it.

    Use water in tub, pipes, water heater or toilet tank for washing or flushing.

    You can use water in water heater. Turn off power and open spigot at the bottom. Don’t reconnect the water heater until you’re told the water supply is safe.

    PURIFIED WATER

    If you must purify water:

    Use 8 drops unscented liquid chlorine bleach (1/8 teaspoon) per gallon of clear water or 16 drops (1/4 teaspoon) per gallon of cloudy water. Mix thoroughly and let stand 30 minutes.

    Water should have a slight chlorine smell; if it doesn’t, repeat dose and let stand another 15 minutes.

    If you use household (2 percent) tincture of iodine, use 12 drops per gallon.

    Don’t use the wrong strength!

    • Responding to concerns about personal security for lawmakers after last week’s gun attack at a Congressional baseball practice, U.S. House leaders are moving to provide extra money to members for protection back home, as well as new funding to bolster the work of police and security officials on Capitol Hill. Under a plan approved by a House spending subcommittee on Friday, the Congress would provide an extra $7.5 million next year to the Capitol Police for an “increased security posture” around the Capitol, along with $5 million to the House Sergeant at Arms to help with security for lawmakers back in their districts. “We are taking a new fresh look at security,” said Rep. Kevin Yoder (R-KS), the Chairman of subcommittee that deals with funding for the Legislative Branch. Our FY18 Legislative Branch funding bill increases efficiency & transparency in Congress, enhances security for Members & our constituents. pic.twitter.com/FI36tF2XeH — Rep. Kevin Yoder (@RepKevinYoder) June 22, 2017 “The tragic events of June 14 weigh heavily on these deliberations,” said Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-NJ), the Chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, which could vote on the extra money as early as this next week. Also being put into motion is a separate plan to funnel an extra $25,000 to each member of the House – about $11 million in all – to help them increase security back in their districts. “The scariest part for us is there used to be this impression by the public that we all had security everywhere we went,” said Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH). “Now, everyone knows that isn’t the case,” Ryan added, as he lent his support to the extra funding for security as well. The money in this budget bill would not take effect until the new fiscal year – which starts October 1 – so, House leaders are ready to okay extra money immediately for members worried about security back in their districts. Roll Call newspaper reported that could be approved in coming days by the House Administration Committee. Yoder said Congressional leaders are also waiting to see if money raised in campaign contributions for House elections could be put to use for security as well. “Pending an FEC (Federal Election Commission) decision, we’re also looking at whether campaign funds could be used to continue to support security upgrades at personal residences,” Yoder added.

However it was located by the Northwest Water Rescue unit and at 0048 hours the rescue boat reported that it had located the victims and was loading the fourth individual into the boat.” KRMG’s told the victims were hanging onto the hull when they were found.

    • We know this might start an argument, but according to Business Insider, Oklahoma's most famous band EVER is the Flaming Lips. Business Insider admits the song 'She Don't Use Jelly' is the Norman-based indie rockers only U.S. hit. But they say the band has had many hits in the U.K. and Europe and, even more impressive, three Grammys to their credit. Some on the list are hard to argue with, like Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band in New Jersey or Nirvana in Washington State. You can see the entire list of the most famous bands here.
