Poll: Did you know old rice could make you sick?

New Zealand Food Safety

Just because it’s rice doesn’t mean it lasts longer than other food. Over time, cooked rice may grow bacteria that produces toxins, which can make you sick. So, make sure you cover, refrigerate and only keep for a day or two.

Don’t risk making your whānau sick. Eat any leftover food within two days. If in doubt, chuck it out.

Remember to Clean Cook Chill and check our easy food safety tips here.
