Attention Freezer Owners: In case of power outage, DO NOT Open!

Ella Mae Bard, C.F.C.S. Extension Agent, Family and Consumer Sciences Knox County

"Sooner or later there will be a problem. It might be a winter ice storm or summer wind and rain. There are also questions about food safety when the freezer fails or is accidentally unplugged.

If at all possible, wait until power is on before opening the freezer door. Each door opening increases the interior temperature and decreases the time foods will hold safely without power."
