At this time of year food safety is an important topic with triple digit temperatures and outdoor picnics and holidays. Temperature safety in your refrigerator should also be addressed.

The temperature inside your fridge for proper food safety should be 40 degrees or below and the freezer should be at 0 degrees. 

Milk and eggs should be stored inside the fridge, not in the door (the temperature can vary due to it being opened for food removal).

Uncooked meats should be stored on a plate/bowl to prevent cross-contamination of uncooked juice.

Don’t cram a lot of stuff in the freezer which prevents the cold air from circulating.

Keep your foods in a cooler coming home from the grocery and put them away right when you get home  to ensure the freshness of your newly purchased products.

Utilize, but change, baking soda in your refrigerator to keep your fridge smelling fresh. 

If food goes bad, and he smells fill your refrigerator, put a cotton ball soaked with vanilla on the fridge shelf to absorb the bad smell.

 Clean the shelves regularly.  I’ve used straight vinegar to clean the interior shelves,  walls and door seals if the smell can’t be removed.

 Keep the vents of the unit clean of dust for the motor to run efficiently.

Proper food temperature inside your fridge is very important for the health safety of you and your family.
