Follow these Food Safety Rules for Packing Your Cooler
. Keep in mind that on most summer days, temperatures in Santa Clarita will exceed 90 degrees,
at which time the FDA recommends foods outside of a cooler will only last one hour (not the typical two hours you may have been told). Food in your cooler must remain at 40 degrees, so you must pack your food on lots of ice. Consider packing plenty of
zip lock bags in your suitcase and filling them at your hotel.
Here are some tips from the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service for safely packing a cooler
Items which don't require refrigeration include fruits, vegetables, hard cheese, canned meat or fish, chips, bread, crackers, peanut butter, jelly, mustard, and pickles. You don't need to pack them in a cooler.
After estimating the amount of food which needs to be kept cold, pack an insulated cooler with sufficient ice or gel packs to keep the food at 40 °F. Pack food right from the refrigerator or freezer into it.
Why? Bacteria grow and multiply rapidly in the danger zone between 40 °F and 140 °F (out of the refrigerator or before food begins to cook). So, food transported without an ice source or left out in the sun at a picnic won't stay safe long.
If packing a bag lunch or lunch box, it's fine to prepare the food the night before and store the packed lunch in the refrigerator.
Once gel packs and other cold sources melt, perishables are not safe -- discard them.
When taking food to a picnic, don't put the cooler in the trunk; carry it inside the air-conditioned car. At the picnic, keep the cooler in the shade. Keep the lid closed and avoid repeated openings. Replenish the ice if it melts.
NOTE: Outside food is not permitted in the park. Consider eating an early lunch if packing the cooler in the trunk once you arrive at the park.
