No, this is stuff you can eat, apparently. Wouldn't like to try it myself though, it doesn't look much like chips to me. I am told salt water would make it taste funny, though it looks as if it probably tastes funny already.

It's not that 'salad' stuff I've been dodging for a long time is it?

You sound like Commander Sam Vimes - "I'll have a BLT and go easy on the lettuce and tomato, VERY easy".

Before you spend big bucks, disconnect the electrical supply and turn the fridge upside down for a wee while, shake or agitate it if poss, turn it right way up and allow it to settle, agitating it again may help, then reconnect the mains and see how it gets on.
No joke.

Yep, that would completely end it's useful life.

This was a trick used to repair ammonia filled fridges in the dark ages. Fridges these days are filled with R134A or R600A gas and have oil in the compresser. Mixing the two would then cause oil to be pumped around the refrigeration system and VOILA!! You have a cupboard.
