GREENSBORO, N.C. — Something else you should consider washing more often - those reusable grocery bags!
Think about all the raw meat you carry, then the fresh food the next time. It can be easy to cross-contaminate without you knowing it.
You should consider cleaning them after every trip to the store. Most can be tossed into the wash on a sanitary cycle - or with a small amount of bleach and water.
When you're at the store, designate one bag for raw meats - and make it clear that's the one to use every week. You could also buy an insulated bag to keep food colder while on the way home.
