The COVID-19 pandemic has had many of us buying our groceries in more bulk than usual, which has some food safety experts advising us to make sure we exercise extra caution to avoid food poisoning.
OSU Extension Agent Pat Brinkman in Fayette County says fresh meat should be eaten within three days of buying it and meat that is frozen can last up to six months, if stored properly and doesn't have "freezer burns" on it.
Canned foods should never be eaten, if the can has swollen.
While most of us are correctly concerned about the "use-by-sell date", Brinkman says some dairy products such as milk, should be good as long as it doesn't smell or taste spoiled.
