What's the temperature in a fridge?

The ideal refrigerator temperature range is 1°-4.5°C (34°-40°F)

. Bacterial and mold growth are considerably slowed down at these

temperatures, thus retarding food spoilage. Since water freezes at

0°C (32°F), this prevents fresh foods from freezing, although when

the temperature is at the low end of the range, some areas in the

refrigerator may be below the freezing point.
