What is a safe way to store infant formula and food?

To store bottles, formula or infant food, you must:
(1) Label all bottles with the infant's full name and the date the bottle was filled to be sure the correct formula or breast milk is given to each infant;
(2) Have a refrigerator accessible to staff to store bottles and unserved, leftover infant food;
(3) Throw away the contents of any bottle not fully consumed within one hour. Do not put bottles that have been used back into the refrigerator;
(4) Throw away or return to the family any unused bottle contents within twelve hours of preparing or arriving at the center;
(5) Not serve infant formula past the expiration date on the manufacturers container; and
(6) Keep bottle nipples covered when not in use to reduce risk of cross contamination and exposure.
