How to shop with care
(HealthDayNews) -- Because of a growing concern about food-borne diseases, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration suggests you stack your shopping cart and grocery bags with care.
Here are some steps you should follow:
- Separate raw meat, poultry, seafood, and eggs from ready-to-eat foods.
- Place raw foods inside plastic bags to contain the juices.
- Go home straight after your grocery shop and refrigerate perishables right away.
- In hot weather, load groceries into your air-conditioned car rather than the trunk.
