StillTasty.com

Your favorite dinner feast can go a long way, if you store it properly. But, before you take another bite, you might want to double check: how long is too long before that meal becomes unsafe and not tasty.

The website stilltasty.com touts itself as the ultimate shelf life guide -- providing its users with advice on when to toss and how to store your favorite foods and beverages.

The site is pretty straightforward, enter a beverage or food item in the search box and press enter.

And within seconds an answer. Did you know? A whole turkey can last for about 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator and about 2 to 3 months in the freezer.

Stilltasty.com is free to use and also answers your questions like: "I left pizza out overnight - is it still safe to eat?"

According to the website, you're out of luck.

CosmeticsDatabase.com

It then gives you a safety ranking -- on a scale of one to ten -- ten being the most hazardous.

It also lets you know what the product has been linked to: such as cancer all the way down to allergies.

And, it offers a list of what it believes is safer products.
