Duck fat-still ok?

A while back (probably last fall) I made some duck confit and afterwards I saved the duck fat in a plastic container in the fridge. I assume that pure duck fat doesn't really go bad in the fridge, but although I had strained it, there is some brown bits in the bottom of the container (bits of actual duck, I assume). I'm thinking of just scooping out the fat except for the bottom part and reusing it-is this ok?

    I think you should be ok - but I would recommend (1) smelling it (2) making sure you could it thorouhgly when reusing it.
