5 Common Fridge Smells 

(Why These Are Dangerous)

A smelly fridge is often thought of as an annoyance rather than a health concern. However, there are scenarios where a strong scent from your fridge can put your life in danger. 

Although refrigerators are meant to preserve food for as long as possible, it is still common for your fridge to smell like rot.

1. Rotting Smell in Fridge

This often happens when a small item like a baby carrot or a grape tomato escapes its packaging and begins to rot when dropped behind a veggie drawer or wedged against a corner or the back of a shelf.

Bad smells with high enough concentrations of certain gaseous substances can cause headaches, nausea, and possible difficulty breathing.
