When a power outage occurs, one of the most common concerns that come to mind is that the refrigerator has stopped working and the food inside will spoil! After the outage, how long it will stay cold? After how many hours the food will start to spoil? Let us try to answer all these questions.
Food inside the refrigerator will not spoil immediately after a power cut. Normally, a refrigerator will keep cool for more than an hour after the outage. The deep freezer will stay cool for more than 12 hours. The actual time depends on its size and condition. Keep the refrigerator doors closed as long as possible during the outage. It will help to maintain the temperature for a longer time.
The general rule is to keep 50C temperature for perishable food items. Once the temperature goes above it, bacteria formation on the food items will start. When in doubt, check the temperature using a thermometer. If it touches the threshold, it is better to consume the food.
