Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? 220.127.116.110
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Expansions: All Except Cats and Dogs and Snowy Escape Game Packs: All Except Strangerville, Jungle Adventure, and Spa Day Stuff Packs: Only Laundry Day, Paranormal, Nifty Knitting, Kids Room, Kits: None Free Packs: Holiday Celebration Packs, Grim's Ghoulish Guitar
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Send a Sim to Create a meal until they are interrupted by AI Events, they sit their meal or half-finished meal on the counter/table, then without eating it go back to the fridge to grab another meal instead of going back to their original meal.
What happens when the bug occurs? They "forget" they just got a meal and/or prepared it without eating it.
What do you expect to see? They autonomously go back for the meal they just prepped before going to the fridge to make a new one and/or they do not waste food by leaving it uneaten.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure
I have nothing further to add to the above information.
@LeissaMyst It may be worth noting that cheetah speed (or whatever they're calling the three forwards arrows now) may be exacerbating the problem.

I don't work or have any association with EA. I give advice to the best of my knowledge and cannot be held responsible for any damage done to your computer/game.
Please only contact me via PM when asked to do so.
I used MC Tuner to forbid any fridge, stove, grill, or cauldron interactions that weren't "get leftovers." Oddly effective.
Honestly, the endless cooking and cooking and cooking and cooking and then eating chips is bad enough (ew), but I was driven to distraction by my merman with the Child of the Ocean trait constantly trying to autonomously make tuna casserole. If he actually ATE that, he'd cry AND get the "stomach squall" nauseated moodlet. Of course, he probably wouldn't and would instead eat chips (grrrr) and would leave FISH FRIEND!!!!!!! to rot on the counter, but...
I try very hard to accommodate his dietary restrictions (oy!) and don't appreciate him autonomously trying to make himself sick and sad!

@missyy1616Almost a thousand people have reported this as a bug. So multiply that by the number of people who bought the game and just think it's the way the game works, didn't know it was a bug, and gave up on it. That is so sad.
I am sure that 100% of the people who have bought this game are experiencing this bug. And it is game-breaking. And that is also sad.
Just had one that I hadn't seen before (am still having the 'forgot meal' issue). While my sim was cooking, she stopped, took food out of her inventory and started eating. Initially, I thought this was because she was hungry (would still be odd though), but she did it two more times with her hunger meter full.
