Loss Of Electricity And Frozen Foods

If the power goes out when you aren’t home, everything from meat to milk will be at risk. But if the power returns before you do, you’ll never know if your fridge was running the whole time or not.
Here’s a simple trick you’ll want to remember if you’ll be away during bad weather. All you need for this trick is a quarter and cup of water. Put the water in the freezer until it’s frozen solid. Then, take it out and put a quarter on top of the ice. Return the cup — with the quarter — back to the freezer. When you return, if you find the quarter has moved to the bottom of the cup, then you’ll know your food was unrefrigerated while you were gone and it’s no longer safe to eat. Watch the video HERE.
