Tip of the Day

Are You Toting Around Harmful Bacteria?

While reusable tote bags have become popular and serve as an eco-friendly and trendy way to transport groceries, they might be getting you sick. Cross-contamination occurs when disease-causing bacteria are transferred from one food to another. Reusable totes make it simple for bacteria from raw foods to contaminate produce and other ready-to-eat foods.

If you use a reusable tote bag, remember to:

  • Frequently wash it in a washing machine or by hand with hot, soapy water.
  • Put meat, poultry and seafood in separate totes than produce and ready-to-eat foods when grocery shopping.
  • Clean all areas where you place your totes.
  • Store in a clean, dry location and avoid leaving totes in the trunk of a vehicle.

For more information on how to keep your tote germ-free, check out our Reusable Tote Safety on www.HomeFoodSafety.org.
