The Irish newspaper The Irish Sunday Times has published a short video in which a man explains what normal fridge temps are and why he uses them.
The video was created in a bid to dispel myths about the heating and cooling of fridge.
The man, who is not named in the video, uses a refrigerator as a reference point.
“My fridge is very cold and it needs to be,” the man explains.
“I think it is a lot more than just a normal fridge, it’s a fridge that is used for cooling.”
The man then uses the words normal fridge temperatures as a guide for his cooking.
“This is a temperature that should not be reached,” the narrator says.
“Normal fridge temperature is a safe temperature.
That is why I use a normal temperature.
But it is not what I would call normal, I use normal temperature because it’s safe.”
The fridge, which is insulated, is cooled by a heat exchanger.
The narrator then shows a picture of a fridge in a home, in which the temperature is normal.
“The fridge is always a safe place for the home,” the video concludes.
“The fridge keeps food warm.
It keeps food in the fridge.”
The idea of normal fridge temperature being safe is also backed up by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
In a statement, the American Association of Pediatrics said it does not support or endorse the use of the term “normal”.
“We are not aware of any scientific studies that indicate a relationship between normal refrigerator temperatures and the risk of heart disease or other health problems,” the statement said.
“Therefore, we believe that the only appropriate term to use is ‘safe’ and do not recommend it.”
