how long does it take for your food to spoil hero image

We've all been there. Your stomach is growling as if there's a lion in there so you open the fridge only to remember that you forgot to go to the grocery store over the weekend. You push aside the stray sodas and half-empty jars of condiments and see the styrofoam to-go box in the corner of the fridge. It's your Mexican food leftovers from a few days ago, or maybe it's been over a week now, but either way, you reach for it in desperation.

You'll soon regret this decision over the next 24 hours as food poisoning takes its toll on you. If only you knew how long certain foods last before they spoil, you may have been spared. Well, we at Kitchen Cabinet Kings know your pain. That's why we created this guide to how long it takes for common foods to spoil in the pantry, fridge and freezer.

This guide is useful to anyone who stores food in their home, especially for long periods of time. If you're ever doing your spring cleaning and clearing out your pantry, you may realize it's time to do something about your outdated kitchen. If so, be sure to check out our extensive guides to kitchen design and remodeling ideas.
