Office Refrigerator Sends Seven Workers to Hospital

I'm Asking: What Does It Look Like Inside Your Office Fridge?

My reaction was disgust, but not total shock, when I heard a hazmat team was called in after a brave worker attempted to clean out an office refrigerator full of old food. The fumes from moldy lunches coupled with the cleaning chemicals sent seven employees to the hospital, and 28 others required treatment for nausea and vomiting. Can you imagine how gross that fridge must have been?

Perhaps you can imagine it. I've come across some really nasty collections of rotten food in office refrigerators, though none that sent anyone to the hospital. What do you see when you open your office fridge — total chaos or relative order?
