Suggestions to prevent cross-contamination

(HealthDay News) -- Foods such as meat, seafood, poultry and eggs must be separated from other edibles to prevent possible cross-contamination with germs.

The Foodsafety.gov website offers these suggestions:

  • Keep these foods separate from all other foods in your grocery shopping cart.
  • When you check out at the grocery, make sure each of these foods is separately wrapped in a plastic bag to prevent juices from leaking.
  • Keep these foods in plastic bags or storage containers in the refrigerator or freezer.
  • Eggs should be stored in their cartons and kept in the main part of the refrigerator, not in the door.
