INFORMATION
BASIC SAFETY
PRECAUTIONS
(CONT.)
DO NOT refreeze frozen foods which have
thawed completely.
The United States
Department
of Agriculture
in Home and Garden
Bulletin No. 69 says:
...You may safely refreeze frozen foods that have
thawed if they still contain
ice crystals or if they are
still cold--below
40°F (4°C).
...Thawed
ground meats, poultry, or fish that have
any off-odor
or off-color should not be refrozen
and should not be eaten. Thawed
ice cream
should be discarded.
If the odor or color of any
food is poor or questionable,
dispose of it. The
food may be dangerous
to eat.
Even partial thawing
and refreezing
reduces the
quality of foods, particularly
fruits, vegetables,
and prepared
foods. The eating quality of red
meats is affected less than that of many other
foods. Use refrozen foods as soon as possible to
save as much of their quality as you can.
Risk of Child
Entrapment
Discarded or abandoned
refrigerators
are
dangerous,
even if they will sit for just a few
days. If you are disposing
of your old refrigerator,
please follow the instructions
below to help prevent
accidents.
Before you throw away your old refrigerator
or
freezer:
• Take off the doors.
• Leave the shelves in place
so that children
may
not easily climb inside.
CFC DISPOSAL
Your old refrigerator
may have a cooling system
that used CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons).
CFCs are
believed to harm stratospheric
ozone.
If you are throwing
away your old refrigerator,
make sure the CFC refrigerant
is removed for
proper disposal
by a qualified servicer.
If you
intentionally
release this CFC refrigerant, you can
be subject to fines and imprisonment
under
provisions of environmental
legislation.
