One of the first areas of your kitchen that an Environmental Health Officer (EHO) will inspect during a random visit is your fridge and freezer door seals.
Any split, frozen, damaged, hanging or missing seals could have a detrimental effect on a establishment ‘Food Hygiene Rating’ and could lead to a fine or even a kitchen being closed for repeated offences. It’s important that your fridge door seals are checked on a regular basis to ensure they meet the high standards for food safety and to avoid legal issues or being named in the local press.
A split, damaged or worn seal is a potential reservoir for pathogens. A pathogen is a biological agent that can cause serious illness. Refrigeration units prevent the growth of food spoilage organisms and even stops the growth of many food-borne pathogens.
In order to maintain the correct storage temperatures within the refrigeration it is essential to maintain an airtight seal between the refrigerated space and the surrounding ambient temperature.
By cleaning and replacing refrigeration door seals regularly, the risk of food cross-contamination is significantly reduced or eradicated altogether.

A broken seal can mean that your refrigeration equipment is using as much as three times more energy, which will be reflected in your energy bills.
Damaged door seals let cool air escape from your fridge or freezer, meaning you will be using more power to keep the stock you have at a low temperature, and when you consider that the energy used in catering facilities typically accounts for 4-6 percent of operating costs, your bills could end up significantly higher.
Seals generally erode because they’ve reached the end of their lifespan, which typically speaking, is between 6-18 months. Telling signs that they need to be replaced include your fridge not staying as cold as it used to and food is spoiling faster or the door pops open repeatedly, which is usually due to a weakened seal that can no longer remain suctioned closed as it should.
One way to test your refrigeration door seal is to close a piece of paper in the door and see if you can pull it out with little resistance (the seal should create a firm resistance). If the test identifies a problem, you should consider replacing the door seal.
