The FoodKeeper can help consumers use food while at peak quality and reduce waste. The storage times listed are intended as useful guidelines and are not hard-and-fast rules. Some foods may deteriorate more quickly while others may last longer than the times suggested. The times will vary depending on the growing conditions, harvesting techniques, manufacturing processes, transportation and distribution conditions, nature of the food, and storage temperatures. Remember to buy foods in reasonable quantities and rotate the products in your pantry, refrigerator, and freezer.
Every year, billions of pounds of good food go to waste in the U.S. because consumers are not sure of its quality or safety. Food waste from households represents about 44% of all food waste generated in the U.S. By reducing food waste through buying appropriate quantities, storing foods properly, cooking what is needed and composting, consumers can save money and reduce the amount of food going to landfills.
Minor bug fixes to calendar integration and recall notifications.
Upgraded the application to be compatible with iOS 12 and up.

Instant notification food recalls
Nice app; however, I wish they would make a way for users to delete viewed items in recall list; very annoying. There is a clear history button that doesn’t appear to work.
So far everything I have in my organic kitchen has been in the app. I’m not looking for packaged food just fresh since I don’t need to store food filled with preservatives. No problems with search function or missing items so far.
Great app, recalls info could be more prominent
I signed up to this app to get info about food recalls, but it was hard to figure out how to turn the “push” notices on to actually get them. These should be automatically turned on when you sign up.
