The last few months I have been getting diarreha and a poisoned feeling off and on. That is something I used to get all the time, but I thought I was mostly over that, so I was puzzled. I bought a refrigerator thermometer on a whim and found out that our fridge temp has been between 40 and 45 degrees and that is on the coldest setting. Anything over 40 is not safe. The ideal temp is 37 or 38 degrees. Our fridge is 14 yrs old, so we have decided to replace it. Just thought I'd share my experience in case it would help others. By the way, I am thinking of getting a stainless steel fridge because the model fits our space and we could have it by friday. I have heard they are hard to keep clean. I only use natural products for cleaning, so I am wondering if anyone has any thoughts on caring for stainless appliances. My other choice would not be available till Sept. 12. We have an awkward space to work with. Any thoughts?
