Keeping food safe during an emergency

Living on the Gulf Coast I have dealt with power outages from hurricanes when it's hot, and growing up in Michigan, had power outages from storms when it's cold. First and foremost is if you are questioning if it's ok pitch it. Even a standing rib roast is cheaper than a hospital stay from food poisoning. I use restaurants as a guideline. Think about the table at most dinners, there is a bottle of ketchup, mustard, and maybe even some steak sauce, tells me it's probably of if they don't stay below 40 for a day or 2. After a week just start over. You can also use this site to help some too:
