Shop til you drop…

…from an infection, yikes.

Feeling a tad queasy just reading this report on how of 84 reusable shopping bags tested by researchers at the University of Arizona and Loma Linda University, nearly every bag was laden with bacteria, 50 percent of them showed evidence of coliform bacteria (indicating potential raw-meat or uncooked food contamination) and 12 percent featured E. coli.

Shopping shouldn’t make you sick. Add machine or hand washing your super cute reuseable shoppers (we personally love the ones from Blue Q such as this little number here) to the top of your to-do list.
