Reheating Instructions

Foods are refrigerator safe for 5 to 7 days & should be frozen by that time. Thaw frozen foods in the refrigerator overnight. If not stored in the freezer, please consume any shellfish or fish first for freshest quality. It should be eaten in the first 3 days. With the exception of shrimp, all proteins are slightly undercooked so when heated they will not become overcooked. Pork with a pink tint is not undercooked & is safe to eat. Poultry should have no pinkness to it, and should be heated as specified to ensure it is cooked through.

 

To heat foods in the microwave unless otherwise directed: wet a paper towel & squeeze out excess water. Lay towel directly on top of food and proceed with heating instructions listed. Please use care when removing the paper towel as it will act as a ‘steamer”.
