Study: Too much food going to waste in homes

August 29, 2019 05:57 PM

Take a look in your fridge and consider that much of the food will be thrown out.

Researchers from Ohio State University found while most adults expected to eat nearly all of the meat and vegetables they purchase, they only ate about half.


They also thought they would eat most of the fruit and dairy.

However, in the end they tossed about 60-percent. Some of the biggest reasons for that were appearance, odor, and confusion about use-by dates.
