Warm Food Into The Fridge???

DavidT | Jan 14, 2003 12:35 PM

Can anyone tell me whether (for health reasons) it is OK to put warm food, such as a leftover stew or casserole, into the refridgerator or should I wait until it has cooled down to room temperature? I recall once being told that putting warm food into the fridge might allow certain harmful bacterias to develop. Does anyone know if this is true? Thanks.
