Preventing food-borne illnesses can also be done by properly washing fruits and vegetables. Don't make the mistake of thinking that the misting done at the grocery store is enough. Bacteria can be present in the soil the vegetables are grown in and on the hands of those who harvest and distribute the food.

 

Running vegetables and fruit under cold water isn't enough. Soaking them for 5 or 10 minutes in a container that you use for this purpose only will eliminate more bacteria. Soaking fruits and vegetables with a combination of water and food-safe cleaning products, such as apple cider vinegar or baking soda will also help. Mix three tablespoons of vinegar or baking soda for every gallon of water.

By following these simple food safety tips you'll help prevent food-borne illnesses and help keep your family safe.
