Eat or toss?

(article, Culinate staff)

Freaked out about how long that potato salad's been sitting on the picnic table? Get reassured at Still Tasty, a new website for consumers trying to figure out whether something's safe to eat or not. The site offers shelf-life info by ingredient as well as storage and handling tips. Drawing on food-safety research conducted by the USDA, the FDA, and the Centers for Disease Control, the site is a bit like a miniature health department aimed at individuals, not the public at large.
