Refrigerator left open?

Recommended Posts

My husband got home really late last night and had stopped at the grocery on his way home. He unloaded and went to bed. At 3 am (sick kid) I noticed the refrigerator was open a crack. The things felt cold to cool depending on location but most stuff was sweating. Hubby thinks he unloaded between 11 and 12 pm. So the door was open from 3 to a maximum of 4 hours.


Do you think things (especially my meat) are safe?

I'd use it.


This has got me wondering, though...how do the grocery store refrigerators, such as in the milk aisle, work without doors? At the store I use, the freezers have doors, some food is kept in the chest-style refrigerators (so the cold air stays lower, with the food), but some cold food is kept on what seem to be refrigerated shelves. How do they stay cold?
