What are important food safety considerations with Sous Vide cooking?

Make sure to use food-safe plastic bags If you're not planning on eating immediately, chilling a food in an ice-water bath before refrigerating is always recommended (and freezing) for long-term storage. This ensures that the food doesn't spend long in the danger zone, and minimizes any potential for trouble.  Equipped with these simple precautions, you can confidently navigate the delicious world of sous-vide cooking without fear.
