Yesterday my fridge/freezer started to warm up, which had me concerned. So I didn't go into fridge unless I had too. Well the fridge temperature came down to normal but freezer remained higher than I like. Then when I pulled out food for dinner the fridge/freezer was warming up even before I took the first item out. Long story short my fridge part didn't come down to a safe temperature & Larry didn't go get me ice like I asked last night. I have lost just about everything in my fridge, the produce I believe will be fine and jello that hadn't been open they are individual containers are OK and so is the juice (cranberry peach) I haven't opened yet is also fine. I did lose lunch meat (ham & pastrami), cheese, milk (reg. & Soy). Broccoli cheese soup etc...
I am hoping not to lose my frozen food before the repair man comes, I just did a meat buy, I have about $200.00 work of meat in the freezer. I do a meat buy once every 3-4 weeks. I am not pleased.
All Larry could say is that I will eat the food in the fridge. I told him you are crazy, bacteria probably is growing. My fridge just came down to 40 degrees after not opening it for 7 1/2 hours. When I went to bed it was 45 degrees. Food safety suggests what I read online that fridge be no high than 38 degrees and food itself not be over 41 degrees,
keep your fingers crossed that I don't lose anything else.
