Whether you are a beginner cook or a seasoned meal prepper, it is always a good idea to have a food safety chart close by like this one from howlongtocook.org. How long can I keep these foods in the fridge or freezer? Is a highly googled question. This helpful guide breaks down the FDA food safety guidelines nicely. Lunch meat, if opened or deli sliced, can be kept in the fridge for 3-5 days before going bad and in the freezer 1-2 months. Sealed and unopened lunch meat can be kept in the refrigerator for 2 weeks and the freezer for 1-2 months. Fresh poultry such as a chicken or turkey or raw sliced chicken parts can last in the fridge for one to two days if not in packaging and 9-12 months in the freezer. Fresh fish is safe for 1-3 days in the refrigerator and 2-3 months in the freezer. Learn about all the other food groups on this graphic too.
