Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What is the magic number for refrigerator and freezer temperatures?

    • A.

      40 degrees and 0-10 degrees

    • B.

      30 degrees and 15 degrees

    • C.

      35 degrees and -5 degrees

    Correct Answer
    A. 40 degrees and 0-10 degrees
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 40 degrees and 0-10 degrees. These temperatures are considered to be the optimal range for refrigerator and freezer temperatures. Keeping the refrigerator at 40 degrees helps to prevent the growth of bacteria, while the freezer should be set between 0-10 degrees to keep food frozen and prevent freezer burn. Maintaining these temperatures ensures that food stays fresh and safe to consume for longer periods.

    How long can you keep eggs in the refrigerator?

    • A.

      Two weeks

    • B.

      One week

    • C.

      Four-five weeks

    Correct Answer
    C. Four-five weeks
    Explanation
    Eggs can be kept in the refrigerator for four to five weeks. The refrigerator helps to slow down the growth of bacteria on the eggs, extending their shelf life. Storing eggs in the refrigerator at a constant temperature of around 40°F (4°C) helps to maintain their freshness and quality. It is important to note that eggs should be stored in their original carton to protect them from absorbing odors from other foods in the fridge. Additionally, it is recommended to check for the expiration date on the carton and discard any eggs that are cracked or have an unusual odor.

    How long can you freeze milk for?

    • A.

      One month

    • B.

      Two months

    • C.

      Three months

    Correct Answer
    C. Three months
    Explanation
    Milk can be frozen for up to three months because freezing helps to preserve its freshness and quality. However, it is important to store milk in airtight containers and leave some room for expansion, as milk expands when frozen. When thawing frozen milk, it is recommended to do it in the refrigerator and consume it within a few days after thawing.

    Where should raw meat, poultry and seafood be placed in the fridge?

    • A.

      Top shelf in sealed container/plastic bag

    • B.

      Middle shelf in sealed container/ plastic bag

    • C.

      Bottom shelf in sealed container/plastic bag

    Correct Answer
    C. Bottom shelf in sealed container/plastic bag
    Explanation
    Raw meat, poultry, and seafood should be placed on the bottom shelf of the fridge in a sealed container or plastic bag to prevent any potential contamination. Placing them on the bottom shelf ensures that any drippings or juices from the raw items do not come into contact with other food items, reducing the risk of cross-contamination. The sealed container or plastic bag helps to contain any potential leaks or spills, further preventing the spread of bacteria.

  • 6. 

    True or false: You should never defrost food at room temperature. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Defrosting food at room temperature can lead to the growth of bacteria, as the outer layers of the food may become warm enough for bacteria to multiply while the inside remains frozen. This can increase the risk of foodborne illnesses. It is recommended to defrost food in the refrigerator, under cold running water, or in the microwave using the defrost setting.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    True or false: You can keep a whole chicken or turkey in the freezer for up to one year.

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Whole chickens or turkeys can be safely stored in the freezer for up to one year. Freezing helps to preserve the quality and freshness of the meat for an extended period. However, it is important to ensure that the chicken or turkey is properly packaged to prevent freezer burn and maintain its taste and texture. Proper packaging includes using airtight containers or freezer bags to minimize exposure to air and moisture. Additionally, labeling the package with the date of freezing can help to keep track of its storage time.

  • 10. 

    True or false: Bread can be stored in the fridge. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Bread should not be stored in the fridge because it can dry out and become stale faster. The cold temperature of the fridge speeds up the process of retrogradation, which causes the bread to become hard and lose its freshness. It is recommended to store bread at room temperature in a bread box or a paper bag to maintain its texture and taste for a longer period of time.
