Refrigerated items during power outage?

Power was just restored in our house after a 36 hour outage. We minimized opening refrigerator/freezer doors during that time, but it got into the 80s in the house yesterday. Any advice on whether I need to toss everything in the refrigerator, or can I keep most things besides meats and dairy products?

Use your thermometer. Open quickly and put the thermometer in for a few minutes. Over 50 and I would throw out any leftovers, milk, soft cheese and uncured meats. Over 55 and I would throw out all dairy all meats and dairy based condiments.
