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.

App is quitting on me

App has started closing itself out when hitting the options button. Will try a reinstall. Don’t know where else to report bugs because app support link is food-related, not tech support.

Love it and have a request

I find this app really helpful. The only thing I wish is that under each meat it had a tab for how long raw meat will last in the fridge before cooking, a tab for how long it will last once cooked and a tab for cooking information. Right now it has two of those tabs. One with how to cook the meat but I am not always clear weather the meat is raw or cooked regrading self life storage information. Having a clearly marked tab for each with shelf life info for both circumstances would be even more helpful.
Thank you!

Too many flaws that would be so easy to fix if they tested it and then fixed issues found. It works a basic level ... if you really need it.
Enhancement: provide scaled flagging of danger of consuming past exp date: one x taste bad 3x does not work. 6 x will make kids sick 10 x will kill you provide way to search and list foods based on danger to health or probability of recipes failure due to being to old
