How should I handle and store fresh pork after I've purchased it?

To prevent warming, select pork just before checking out.  Be sure the package is  put in a disposable plastic bag to contain any leakage which could cross-contaminate produce or other foods. Take the pork home immediately and refrigerate it at 40°F or lower, or freeze it at 0°F or lower.
