When in Doubt, Throw It Out, to Prevent Food Poisoning

When in doubt, throw it out.

  • If you are not sure whether a food is safe, don't eat it.
  • Reheating food that is contaminated will not make it safe.
  • Don't taste suspicious food. It may smell and look fine but still may not be safe to eat.
