Home Food Safety Mythbusters is back!


Help consumers get the facts behind common myths about cross-contamination and the growth of harmful pathogens that cause food poisoning: 


Myth 1: It’s OK to wash bagged greens if I want to. There's no harm. Get the fact

Myth 2: Cross - contamination doesn’t happen in the refrigerator -- it is too cold in there for germs to survive! Get the fact

Myth 3: It’s only important to rinse fresh fruits and vegetables for safety. I don't need to dry them too. Get the fact

Myth 4: I don't need to rinse this melon for safety -- the part I eat is on the inside! Get the fact.
