Kitchen and Produce Hygiene Habits [Infographic]

Although many of us are taking all proper precautions and recommendations to keep ourselves and our families safe in the midst of COVID-19, it’s important to watch out for other illnesses and nasty bugs out there that can still pose a risk to our health. For instance, recent studies have shown that foodborne outbreaks keep increasing year over year. A recent food cleanliness survey found that nearly 20 percent of people still don’t regularly wash their produce before consuming and nearly one in four Americans wash their refrigerator vegetable drawers every six months to a year!

Thanks to optimal temperatures, access to nutrients, high moisture, and zero UV rays, your refrigerator drawers make the perfect environment for bacteria growth. If you’re not sanitizing your drawers every one to two week, they can actually end up being up to 45 times dirtier than a public toilet seat — yikes! If you’d like to know what some of the dirtiest spots in your kitchen are and the best way to wash fruits and vegetables to avoid catching a nasty bug or a foodborne virus, be sure to check out the infographic below!
