National Pizza Day is observed annually on February 9th and is a great time to celebrate America’s favorite food.

Need a break from the holidays – to enjoy a delicious meal prepared for you – and maybe take in a movie?
However, just because someone else cooked for you, doesn’t mean you can let your guard down when it comes to food safety. Also, remember, leftovers are only safe for 2 hours at room temperature and won’t last through a movie.
National Pizza Week is observed the second full week of January (12-19) – and pays homage to all things pizza, no matter how you slice it. All perishable foods, including pizza, are not safe to eat after sitting at room temperature for hours and cause you to become sick. Learn more about foodborne hazards and the proper techniques to prevent illness.

Your party gathering is over and you have lots of food leftover. There are some important rules about leftovers that you need to follow to ensure food safety.
Leftovers can be kept for only 2-3 days in the refrigerator. After that, the risk of foodborne illness increases. If you don’t think you’ll be able to them within four days, freeze them immediately.
