Are My Leftovers Safe to Eat?


Have you ever wondered how long you can keep your leftovers or if the canned goods in your pantry are safe to eat? There is an app for that! This free resource was created by the USDA and is available for both Android and Apple devices. If you don’t have a smart phone, you can access a less extensive version on the internet. The purpose of the app is not only to help consumers maximize the freshness, quality, and safety of food but also to provide cooking tips and cooking methods for meat, poultry, and seafood, along with food recalls. You can even set up an alert to remind you when your food items are nearing their recommended storage date so you can make sure and get them used up.

Feel free to call Sara Sawer, the Nutrition, Health, and Wellness Agent at 316.660.0118 with these types of questions or check out this resource at
