Health Tip: Help Prevent Foodborne Illness11/10/10
(HealthDay News) -- The way you shop for groceries can affect
your risk of contracting a foodborne illness.
The American Dietetic Association offers these food-shopping
- Fill your cart first with non-perishable items, saving meat,
dairy and other foods that can spoil for last.
- Choose fresh produce that's sold in loose pieces, rather than
- Make sure dairy products aren't past their "sell-by"
- Choose meat, poultry and fish carefully, purchasing only the
freshest cuts from a grocer you trust.
- Have your meat, fish and poultry put in bags that are separate
from other foods.
