One fine Sunday morning, I realized that the food I kept in the fridge last night, was smelling bad. I was a bit taken aback by this since I always assumed the fridge was a safe place to store my food. I threw the foul-smelling food out and started cleaning my fridge. Later on, I started researching more about this issue and what might have caused it.
