It feels totally weird when my sim goes on vacation and in the fridge there are leftover food cooked by a previous guest. One thing is that someone should have cleaned out any leftovers before the next renter arrives, but it's even weirder to find leftovers cooked by a sim who died a generation ago. Still sparkling fresh and tasty.
Is this an overseen glitch that could be easily fixed?
It used to be a thing limited to Granite Falls and Selvadorada, but now that we can have rental lots in most worlds, I think this glitch should be addressed.
Assuming this happens not only in my game?
Easier said than done, though. My sim might be at a Museum when the popup says the vacation is over and you have to leave this very second or stay another 24 hrs. I never had that in RL

If it is still sparkling fresh and tasty, what's the matter? Don't your sims like free food? It's not like it's spoiled or poor quality or something like that.
Well, I'll just stop checking who was the cook, and either clean the fridge or eat free food in silence
That's complimentary free food from your host. They figured you would arrive late at night and be hungry.

A household I played had again reached a new generation, a new couple had married and of course they had their first child. I looked into their household inventory to get a few toddler objects. Then - I found an old toddler potty used by at least 2 generations previously. And - to my surprise it was not cleaned, so they had actually stored last generation's old poo for about 30 years I felt like placing the entire potty on a glass covered display table, without cleaning it of course. Praise the family history! LOL. Yes, it got cleaned, but with mixed feelings as I think the last person to use that potty was actually dead a few years earlier.
I don't think the potty can be placed on a surface at all. But in case you find something similar that deserves exhibiting, TheJim07 at modthesims converted some of the ts3 displays. I use them in several houses, but never tried the potty thing, LOL.
I play rotational so my sims always leave food not only at rental but at other lots. This has been going on for years and I love it! So pleaso do not ask for a "fix"!
Some of my sims love to leave "special" ice cream so I can be surprised later when other sims turn green or are haunted lol
My kids club love this also, when they are hanging at the park there is always good food for them
for more take a look at my showcase:
I hear you on that! Haha! That's real life. Sims 4 though is an imaginary game.
I would say you wouldn't believe the old 'food' I've found in a cottage, lodge, cabin, (even motel and hotel rooms) etc... but from what you said here, you probably would.
