Cull the power
company.
Ask how long power
will be off
1.
If service is to be interrupted
24 hours or less,
keep
both doors closed. This will help frozen
foods to stay frozen.
2. If service
IS
to be interrupted
longer than 24
hours:
[a]
Remove
all frozen food and store in a
frozen food locker. Or..
(b) Place 2 Ibs (0.9 kg] of dry ice in freezer for
every cu. ft. of freezer space. This will keep
frozen foods for 2 to 4 days. Wear gloves to
protect your hands from dry ice burns.
[c)
If neither food locker storage
nor dry ice
is available,
use or can perIshable
food
at once.
3. A full freezer will stay cold longerthan
a partly
filled one. A freezer full of meat will stay cold
longer than a freezer full of baked
goods.
If
food contains
ice crystals, it may be safely
refrozen, although
the quality
and flavor may
be affected.
Use refrozen foods quickly
If the
condition
of the food
IS
poor or you have any
suspicions,
it
IS
wise to dispose of it.
