Your food is spoiling before its expiration date
If your food seems to be going bad much faster than usual, it could mean your fridge is faulty—but not necessarily. First, check your temperate settings. If the temperature is within the normal range but you’re still having a problem, the next step is to check that the door seals are tight.

Your freezer is too cold
