The "ripening gas" is a problem for Cut Flower producers 
and has lead to another gas, I believe, used as the "cure".
I don't remember the name or details. I think the cure 
attaches to the item to be protected in a way that blocks 
the bad gas. This cure may help commercial bulb storage 
folks. Sorry if it does not help in the refridge,  KellyO
