[NEEDS INPUT] [DU] Food put away by Sims in ICYA chest instead of fridge

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?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Everything except Get Famous, Fitness and My First Pet
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have an ICYA chest from Discover Univerity on the lot, Sim prepares food and Sim puts away food. Player drags dorm food to mini fridge.
What happens when the bug occurs? On an off campus lot, the Sim animation looks like they are putting away newly prepared food in a refrigerator when in reality the food is placed in the ICYA chest. If the player drags food to the refrigerator, it stays in the refrigerator. The only way I figured this out was finding a platter of spoiled food in the ICYA chest when I thought it had just disappeared from the refrigerator. This was the second occurrence. The first time I found a platter of spoiled Monte Cristo sandwiches in the ICYA chest was after placing it inside a newly created house on an off campus lot. The platter had been previously dragged into a mini fridge placed inside my Sim's dorm room (Tidal Towers) by myself. Afterwards I was confused when clicking on the mini fridge later and there was no 'Get Leftovers' option. I clicked again and chose 'Open' and the platter was missing. At the time I just figured it had disappeared in relation to a bug others have had with missing inventory. In reality, the platter had been put in the ICYA chest instead of the mini fridge.
What do you expect to see? Platters of food put away by my Sim in a full size fridge or dragged by myself to a mini refrigerator should stay there and not be re-routed to the ICYA chest by the game.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? No

Like mentioned above, this has only happened on campus in a dorm room when I dragged a plate of food to a mini fridge and when my Sim is directed to put away a platter of food in a full size refrigerator off campus. If I drag the food to a full size refrigerator on an off campus lot, it stays there. I don't know about the mini fridge off campus, I sold it after she moved out of the dorms. It's frustrating because I shouldn't have to drag all my Sim's food to the refrigerator now. If I have my Sim use the 'put away' action, I'll be forever having to drag the food back to the refrigerator or throw it away if I haven't noticed and it spoils. Or just get rid of the ICYA chest. I shouldn't have to do that though. I like the chest and have been using it for a TV stand/coffee table in her living room.
