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.
