BALTIMORE (WJZ) — One thing you can count on the day after Thanksgiving is a fridge packed with leftovers!

The Maryland Department of Health is reminding everyone to properly store Thanksgiving leftovers to prevent food poisoning.

Officials are offering these tips to prevent food poisoning:

  • Eat or freeze leftovers within three to four days — gravy within two days
  • Bring gravy to a boil before re-serving
  • Reheat leftovers to 165 degrees
