FRIDGES at a branch of Tesco have failed for the second time in as many months.

The supermarket giant has confirmed it is having 'issues' and is frantically trying to get it fixed.

A post from a shopper on a residents' Facebook page showed sign proclaiming the supermarket in Faringdon is unable to sell any chilled or frozen produce.

The shopper also claimed the branch was 'chucking' its food, amounting to 'hundreds of trolley loads'.

The same problem happened at the same store at the end of June, and it is thought that the hot weather could have contributed to the malfunction.

And the heatwave is set to continiue for at least another 24 hours, and it's going to get hotter. 

Temperatures will reach 33C tomorrow. 


Supermarkets generally remove stock from the shelves if fridges and freezers dip above a certain temperature, due to health and safety reasons. 

A Tesco spokesperson said: "I can confirm that we’re having issues with our refrigerated units in Faringdon and we’re working hard to get these fixed."
