How Can You Protect Food from Mold?
When serving food, keep it covered to prevent exposure to mold spores in the air. Use plastic wrap to cover foods you want to stay moist -- fresh or cut fruits and vegetables, and green and mixed salads. Empty opened cans of perishable foods into clean storage containers and refrigerate them promptly. Don’t leave any perishables out of the refrigerator more than 2 hours. Use leftovers within 3 to 4 days so mold doesn’t have a chance to grow.
