A recent New Zealand Food Safety Authority study shows three out of four Kiwi fridges are not running at the recommended tempera- turerangeof2to4 degrees Celsius to keep food safe. Authority microbiology principal adviser Roger Cook says keeping the fridge suitably cool helps prevent harmful food- borne bacteria from growing because most cannot grow at low temperatures. The study was carried out in 158 households. Participants recorded the temperature in the middle and near the door hinge of their fridge every morning and even- ing for a week. At the start of the week, only a quarter of fridges were in the rec- ommended range of 2 to 4 degC, while 72 percent were too warm -- 36 percent at 4 to 6 degC and 36 percent more than 6 degC. Fridges with seals in poor condition were twice as likely to be more than 6 degC as fridges that had good seals. Mr Cook recommends checking the tempera- ture by putting a ther- mometer into a glass of water in the centre of the fridge for at least two hours. If the temperature in the middle is consist- ently above the recom- mended temperature range, you should adjust the thermostat to lower the temperature. Check for faulty door seals.'' More crossbow incidents Further suspicious cases about cats being shot with a crossbow have come to light. Mt Eden cat Kevin suffered injuries that suggested he was shot with the weapon late last year. Now Mt Eden resident Simon Eskow suspects that his kitten Chester may have suffered a similar fate when he was discovered with puncture wounds on his hind legs, a swollen abdomen and blood under his tail. Chester had suffered major trauma. It made us angry to think that somebody might have done something to Ches- ter,'' Mr Eskow says. Chester was only seven months old and had to be put down. Brendon Bullen of Balmoral Vet Care says when Kevin the cat was brought in, he was suspected to have a broken pelvis and a dis- located tail. He was quite weak with pain in his hind legs and a couple of grazes on his chin. It's unusual to find a puncture wound on its own, normally this would be caused by a bite. It set off alarm bells.'' Kevin's owner Megan Hay says it is likely he was shot with a cross- bow. Mr Bullen is also aware of another case where a cat was stuck in a cat door and the arrow was still lodged in the animal. It did not sur- vive. If you have heard of any similar cases email email@example.com.
