Yes it's true. I smell, or rather my freezer smells. It has never smelled. One day out of the blue I opened it and noticed a slight stinky odor. It keep increasing in stank as the days wore on. Now it smells bad. Too bad. I took every singe thing out of there, smelling it on it's way to the counter.
I scrubbed every surface of that freezer. Then I checked the expiration dates and smelled the food again before putting it back in. I threw out a few old bags of tortillas but that was it. Nothing smelt and nothing else was old or expired. I'm a pretty organized person and I keep my freezer nice.
It's really bugging me. Out of desperation I put a box of backing soda in there. It helps the fridge so maybe it would work in the freezer. It didn't. I am out of ideas. I can't throw everything away, we couldn't eat. I don't know what to do.
