A refrigerator outage is one of the most detrimental emergencies a restaurant can experience. When the fridge or freezer goes out, a restaurant can lose tens of thousands of dollars in food product. Just the thought is enough to make any restaurant owner or manager cringe.
In the summer, a fridge outage can be even more costly. The Health Department has very specific guidelines for food storage and safety. In the event that your commercial refrigerator stops working, you have just a short amount of time to get it repaired before the food goes bad. According to foodsafety.gov, any perishable foods, such as meat, poultry, fish, eggs, soft or shredded cheeses, and leftovers must be discarded if it has been kept above 40° F for more than two hours.
