The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is offering residents tips on keeping their perishables cold during a power failure.
First and foremost, don’t open your fridge or freezer doors unless necessary; adding an unopened refrigerator will keep food cold for four hours.
If available, add ice to the fridge to keep it at safe temperatures.
The CFIA is also reminding the public spoiled food doesn’t necessarily smell bad.
