Contaminated food. The list is long this summer.
Rather than name them all, YOU scrutinize the roll call ofrecent food impurity; caused by salmonella and other poop-causing bacteria. Some are national in nature; others are regional products. This is from the FDA (Food & Drug Administration.) https://bit.ly/2LptHeg
The safeHands® brand 100% ALCOHOL-FREE hand sanitizer might have prevented some of these outbreaks.
Even the frog on Honey Smacks® box is grossed-out.
Four varieties of Pepperidge Farm® GOLDFISH® crackers were pulled because of the potential presence of salmonella. The fish are swimming back upstream.
This is just the beginning I fear. Hopefully, all the brands took appropriate measures and no more people got sick.

There’s aconsistent reason why salmonella, E. coli and other germs are so prevalent.
97% of people don’t wash their hands correctly.
With so many sources where food comes, there are going to be a percentage of people who don’t practice good – or even minimally adequate– hygiene.
Food products are only as safe as the PEOPLE who pick it or handle the ingredients.
So blame the people who don’t wash their hands properly when handling food. Look into the mirror; it could be you!
The smallest to the most preeminent companies have nightmares due to the abysmal public relations that any kind of contamination accessing our food supplies can cause. Plus, litigation is likely if someone is permanently harmed or dies from contaminated foods.
Most people who pick crops don’t exactly have immaculate restrooms available in the middle of a field of – let’s say vegetables – to wash their hands often. Even if they have a portable potty nearby, does it have running water and a really good soap?
Do migrant workers get instructions about HOW and WHEN to wash their hands?
Cleanliness doesn’t have language boundaries. So you can’t cast the blame necessarily on those barriers; though that might be one factor.
It could be YOU who are unhygienic!
Cleanliness is a learned act.
If everyone who touches food goes to the bathroom and doesn’t wash their hands properly EVERY TIME they use the facility – you begin to see just HOW the contamination exists in the first place.
And I’ll say it. Humans can be slobs. Some are plain lazy.
We have to have our lettuce cut FOR us and put in bags. Do YOU KNOW it’s OK for consumption? How about fruits and meats?
Do you know if the handlers touching your food had germ-free hands? Look at what happened with the romaine lettuce scare back in the spring.
This is just the tip of the iceberg lettuce.
We all come in contact with tainted surfaces, uncooked meats (note the raw turkey in dog-food being blamed for some of the HUMAN illnesses, as someone touched Max and Bella’snow contaminated food) that carried bad bacteria.
Soap and water is the first level of preventing germs from staying on your skin.
THEN…if you can’t wash, at least use the right hand sanitizer.
With the 100% ALCOHOL-FREE hand sanitizer, safeHands® brand, you’ll destroy 99.99% of germs with its foaming, pleasant feeling ingredients.
