> PROTECTING YOUR FAMILY FROM FOOD POISONING
> When purchasing
> prepackaged salad, --snip---Wash your produce with running water for
> 15 to 30 seconds, and clean it with a vegetable brush. Do this even for
> prewashed, prepackaged lettuce and fruit you peel, such as, oranges,
> bananas, and melons (bacteria can survive on the skin and be pushed into
> the fruit when cut open).
> After touching raw meat, seafood, fresh eggs,
> or produce (or after going to the bathroom, handling a pet, or changing a
> diaper), wash your hands with warm, soapy water for at least 20 seconds.
> Clean cutting boards and counter surfaces after preparing food, especially
> raw meat. Use one teaspoon chlorine bleach mixed with one quarter hot
> water. Never let your family drink unpasteurized juices or cider ***(in
> general, avoid beverages that say *fresh* and those that you buy from
> roadside stands).*** A piece of fruit that drops from a tree could come
> into contact with bacteria-contaminated feces on the ground; without
> pasteurization, that bacteria will linger on the fruit.
