 Fridges That Will Text or E-mail You When Food is Going Off are Coming Soon!

Fridges that will be able to send consumers email or text alerts when food is going off are being created by a group of researchers.

Ten scientists at Manchester University are working on an advanced device that will be able to send consumers email or text alerts.

Project head Dr Bruce Grieve said: "Food wastage costs in the UK are massive."

UK boffins have created a battery-free label which can pick up when food is on the turn, reports the Sun.

The disposable 5p gadget - like a security label on a CD - measures the temperature of food and the time it is stored.

It will be used by stores next year for bulk foods.
