  • The 10 Dirtiest Foods You're Eating

    I love the newsletters and "Eat this, Not that" columns that come from The article today is incredibly gross... but, dang, very eye opening. If you want to keep your family safe from food born illness, you MUST read this article. It's superb! Has some excellent suggestions on how to kill bacteria... for example, using mustard with cold cuts could help!

    - Chicken
    - Ground Beef
    - Ground Turkey
    - Raw Oysters
    - Eggs
    - Cantaloupe
    - Peaches
    - Prepackaged Lettuce
    - Cold Cuts
    - Scallions

      dirty food

      Umm, thanks?
      Just kidding. This is a very helpful and informative article, though not pleasant to read. There was some info that I knew, but more that I didn't.
      BTW, I wish I could put mustard on my cold cuts, but alas!

        Most of that I already know but it is good to get a refresher of ick! It is easy to get complacent about these things.

        Most cases of food poisoning come from the patient's own kitchen. It never hurts to be overy cautious. My mom taught me all the bleach and proper cleaning of tools and countertops. I will have to share with her not to wash the chicken first tidbit.

        thanks for sharing, with IC, who needs a bad case of food poisoning to go with!

          I also grew up in a bleached kitchen! Now I keep clorox wipes in both kitchen and bathroom to clean up messes. Plus I think my body has been exposed to various bacteria enough that I hopefully have some resistance.

          Thanks for sharing this, Jill.

          Stay safe
