The bacteria are at most shopping carts, do you know?
Because of its spaciousness and comfort, the supermarket is full of variety and low price, and it has become the most popular daily consumer goods store for ordinary people. It is a place that many people must go every day.
However, few people have noticed that under the clean and hygienic appearance of supermarkets, some insignificant small details or the shopping habits we are used to, there are many hidden dangers.
Hurry and take a look at the most dangerous 5 “minefields” and do the appropriate protection in advance.
Shopping cart, shopping basket: “cross-contamination” serious shopping cart, shopping basket can be described as the biggest health hazard of the supermarket.
Due to the highly repeated re-use, the cross-preparation of raw and cooked foods is quite polluted.
Consumers who look at these shopping tools will find a lot of greasy traces on the handlebars, stains on the grid at the bottom of the basket, and even some shopping carts with stains and rust.
In addition to these visible smudges, the number of bacteria hidden in these shopping tools is even more amazing.
Supermarket shopping tools have serious cross-contamination, but no relevant national health standards have yet been issued.
Supermarkets continuously clean or sterilize shopping carts, and the shopping baskets are completely self-conscious.
Large supermarkets are relatively relatively clean and disinfected, but there are quite a few supermarkets or because of shopping carts, the number of baskets is limited, or because of cost considerations, they are often only slightly cleaned or re-added without any cleaning, leaving greatHealth risks.
Experts remind: Individuals should strengthen their awareness of self-protection when using public shopping tools.
Cooked food should not be directly thrown into the shopping cart. In the shopping basket, the outer packaging should be placed in isolation and then put in; after using the shopping tools, do not directly carry the food, and should wash hands and disinfect immediately after returning home; especially to protect children.
Too many parents like to put their children in the shopping cart and push them around. The children are easily contaminated with the bacteria on the car. They should stop the child’s habit of “hand eating” and wash their hands and dress in time.
Cold food: lighting creates a “fresh” illusion that many people have encountered such a situation.
When shopping in the supermarket, the meat is bright red, the vegetables are green, the fruits are extraordinarily fresh, and the bread is golden and attractive. But when you buy them home and look at these things, they often have dull colors and some even have odors.
Why is the freshness of these fresh foods disappearing in a short time?
The answer is all on the light.
As long as consumers pay attention to the observation, they will find that although the supermarket itself has sufficient lighting, the top of the fresh food counter is densely lit with lights, and the color of the lampshade in different sales areas is different. Some raw meat areas are covered with red shades and vegetable areas are green.The lampshade has an orange lampshade in the fruit area and a yellow lampshade in the bread counter.
It is the colored light produced by different lampshades that masks the defects of the food itself, making all kinds of fresh foods look very fresh and moving, stimulating consumers’ desire to buy.
Experts remind: colored lighting is easy to cause people’s visual fatigue and illusion, causing the eyes to produce dullness and deviation when distinguishing food quality, which will have a certain impact on the correct identification of goods.
Especially the red light is not only the longest wavelength, but also easy to attract people’s attention and excitement, which makes people want to buy.
Individuals should pay more attention when shopping, try to be free from the interference of lights, and use more ways to see, eat more and other ways to distinguish the quality of food, so as not to buy rotten food, damage the body.
Homemade food: During the shelf life, you can enjoy the delicious and attractive dishes, cold salad, fried chicken, steamed buns, noodles, and various kinds of cakes. Nowadays, various homemade foods that have been refurbished have become the main products of the supermarket.
A few of the market, unlicensed stalls of cooked food products, most consumers feel that supermarket homemade food is more sanitary and safe, like to buy and like to eat.
Although the food hygiene status of most supermarkets is generally good, there are still a large number of health problems with different degrees of homemade foods, and the problem of shelf life is more common and prominent.
Replacing the date of manufacture with the date of packaging, or changing the date, etc., to blind consumers is a “blocking eye” commonly used in some supermarkets.
Whether it is to buy steamed bread, noodles and other staple foods, or sauce beef, salad dishes and other cooked food, supermarket staff usually after weighing, then put a date on the plastic bag, this date shows the day of the day, but these foodsConsumers have no way of knowing which day they are produced.
Excessive, some producers and operators are jealous of using food labels to change the date, or secondary packaging, and free to expand the shelf life.
Experts advise: consumers should try to choose fresh, freshly baked products, and eat less cold and easy to spoil the cold salad; when buying, you should carefully check the production date and shelf life and other signs, and pay attention to whether the packaging is intact, the label is incomplete,If the package is damaged, don’t buy it. If necessary, you can smell it with no smell. If you buy it, it is best to reheat it. If you buy it, it is best to add some vinegar, garlic and other seasonings. Unless you should be alertDiscounted promotions for homemade foods. These activities are mainly for foods that are immediately expired. The safety index is not high, and individuals should not buy cheaply.
Trying to eat food: lack of proper protection In order to attract business, supermarkets often have promotional staff to put ham, meatballs or tanned soup in front of the counter, so that customers can taste it for free, many people are willing to try, and few peopleI noticed the health problem of trying to eat.
It is often seen that some promoters process food, while selling and selling, the mouth is flying, and it is extremely unsanitary.
The test food is also open and placed, continuously exposed to the air, without any dust protection measures, and can be placed in the lunch box, paper cup, and served by the customer.
There are also some customers who try to pinch it up directly, or pick it up and put it back, which is very likely to cause secondary pollution.
Experts advise: consumers should pay attention to the standard operation of the processed foods before the trial, if they do not wear masks and gloves, or do not take the necessary dust-proof measures such as “transparent glass plate isolation” for the test food, should refuseEat, so as not to “disease from the mouth”; pay attention to the outer packaging of the test food itself, see the production date and shelf life without problems before eating; should use disposable toothpicks or paper cups when eating, so as not to endanger the health of others.
Environmental occlusion: long-term stays are easy to prevent supermarkets because of their spaciousness and comfort, and the goods are complete, often making people forget to return.
However, the closed supermarket lacks fresh air, and the flow of people is usually blocked. The air pollution is heavier. If the stay time is too long, it may cause headaches, dizziness, nausea, nausea and other discomfort symptoms, which may cause serious hidden dangers.
Older people, children, pregnant women and those with underlying diseases should pay special attention.
Experts advise: It is best not to spend more than 2 hours in the supermarket shopping time.At the same time, individuals should try to avoid entering the supermarket in crowded dispatch.
People with chronic bronchitis, high blood pressure, emphysema, pulmonary heart disease, high blood pressure, pregnant women, the elderly and children should consciously control the stay time in the supermarket. When they feel uncomfortable, they should leave in time.
