When it comes to picnics, it’s important to keep food at proper temperatures the entire time. Failure to control food temperatures could increase the risk of food-borne illness outbreaks. Disease-causing bacteria multiply rapidly at temperatures between 41° F and 135° F, known as the Temperature Danger Zone.
The best way to prevent bacterial growth is to keep hot foods hot and cold foods cold. This means keeping hot foods at 135° F or above, and cold foods refrigerated at 41° F and below.
