Is It Safe To Reheat Leftover Subway Sandwiches?

The idea is using proper techniques while reheating, which aids in removing the possibility of bacterial growth from any spoilt food when preparing meals ahead of serving or after storing your meals on take away containers at home.

Reheating leftover sandwiches are generally safe but remember always use proper food storage procedures by keeping leftovers refrigerated and consume within two hours after purchase or discard leftovers after two days since bacteria grows faster when stored longer than that, leading to food-borne illnesses like E.coli or salmonella infections caused by consuming spoiled foods.
