"The Scariest Thing In Many Offices Is The Scuzzy Fridge" according to a
recent headline in the Wall Street Journal."
The article goes on to say: "A monster is lurking in the break rooms of
companies across the nation. It's the office refrigerator, bulging at the
seams as leftover plastic-foam boxes and forgotten Tupperware containers
fight for space with open cans of Coke and rotting fruit."
My assistant and I decided to take up the challenge! We put together a
one-page handout on refrigerator food safety and have been posting this on
refrigerators all over town through company wellness programs, etc.
