How often does the average person clean their refrigerator?

The average American cleans their refrigerator only once or twice per year!

Food-borne disease causes 76 million illnesses, 325,000 hospitalizations, and 5000 deaths per year.

Experts advise that we clean our refrigerators every week or two, and be sure the temperature is at 40 degrees Fahrenheit.

When asked how often they clean their refrigerator, here are poll responses:

About a month ago:  56%

A year ago:  9.2%

You’re supposed to clean it?  11.8%
