(HealthDay News) -- Your refrigerator should be kept at or slightly below 40 degrees Fahrenheit to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration suggests using a thermometer to ensure that your refrigerator maintains the correct temperature.

The FDA also suggests:
  • Avoid stuffing your fridge, as it will prevent cold air from circulating around food.
  • Wipe up spills immediately.
  • Cover refrigerated foods, and check the fridge for spoiled food daily.
  • Throw out expired foods.
