It’s easy to put something in the refrigerator and forget about it.
But foods don’t stay fresh in the fridge forever, and the day will come when you take something out and wonder if it’s still good to eat or has gone bad.
On The Early Show Monday, ShopSmart magazine Editor in Chief Lisa Lee Freeman had the lowdown on how long foods last in the fridge.
ShopSmart consulted a panel of experts to determine which foods could be spoiling by just sitting in the fridge.
Freeman says it’s not always the best idea to rely on labels. Some foods don’t have them, and the ones on others can be confusing.
Also, most people don’t realize that once they open certain popular items found in containers or cans, a new freshness clock starts ticking.
So, it’s important to know which foods have a shorter lifespan once placed in the fridge.
If items that have been sitting in the fridge too long are eaten, they can lead to food poisoning and, in some cases, serious health problems.
BABY FOOD: LASTS 1 – 3 DAYS IN FRIDGE ONCE OPENED
An open jar of strained fruits and veggies lasts two-to-three days in the fridge. Opened cooked meat and vegetable combos need to go after a day or two. Meat and veggie combos should go after two days, tops. The bottom line: Don’t leave open jars of baby food in the fridge longer than three days. A hidden danger with baby food is that parents may feed babies right out of the jar, so saliva transferred to the jar can promote bacterial growth when placed back in the fridge. If you’re using a jar more than once, make sure you portion out what you’re going to use, so the dirty spoon doesn’t go back into the jar.

Thanks philelmo, who works at Shaw, for notifying me of this awesome deal 🙂
This year includes a good deal on phone. As usual, the rules are you must do it instore and show valid student ID, although some people are successful doing it over the phone (CSR’s who don’t read). Must prepay 8 months of service, but some people say they can get monthly (again CSR’s who don’t read). Yes, Basic cable is going up by $7 vs. the old student discount. Good luck, have a good school year!

Q. What happens when the 8 months are over?

Each system is responsible for contacting and switching customers to the appropriate bundle/package after the 8 months. Please note, these accounts will appear on the weekly exception reports distributed by the Account Errors Team and do not need to be manually tracked.
