(HealthDay News) — Leftovers can only last so long before they’re at risk for spoiling.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers these guidelines for storing food:
- Cooked turkey that has been properly refrigerated should be eaten within four days; gravy and stuffing within a day or two.
- Three or four days is best for cooked vegetables and casseroles.
- While cheesecake may last for seven days, fruit and cream pies should be eaten within two to three days.
- No matter how many days it’s been, toss any food that you aren’t sure is safe.
