TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

You might still have holiday leftovers in your fridge, but how long can you keep them before they go bad?

Here's a few tips and tricks:

- Make sure that you don't leave food sitting out longer than two hours.
- Get it into the fridge quickly to keep bacteria from multiplying.
- The temperature of your fridge should be set below 40 degrees so food will stay safe.
- When it's time to reheat the leftovers, bring them back to their original temperature.

Food experts say you should eat the leftovers within three to four days.
