Ever thought about microbial contamination on the food you buy? Anyone can handle, sneeze over or replace from the floor, the fruits and vegetables in the supermarkets and green grocer. Who knows how the chicken you buy as 'fresh' has been stored or handled. All chicken has Salmonella on it but poor handling and warm temperatures somewhere along the cold chain can cause the bacteria numbers to explode. It takes a million organisms per gram to make you ill. How confident are you that the seafood or red meat you buy has been kept at the right temperatures to inhibit microbial growth and make it safe to eat? We hear or read of food recalls nearly every month with Salmonella, E. coli or listeria outbreaks.
Herbal-Active® is an ideal natural food rinse as a meat, poultry, seafood and fruit and vegetable wash. A small volume can be used to surface sanitize fresh produce and it kills food pathogens which can make us ill. It also will extend shelf life by removing the food spoilage organisms that curtail the useful life of our meats, fruit and vegetables, greens, herbs and sprouts.
The facts are that 76 million people in the USA suffered from food poisoning last year and somewhere between 7 and 8 million Australians suffered the same fate. All chicken has Salmonella on the meat or in the skin. It takes 1 million Salmonella organisms to give you symptoms of food poisoning (we know this from tests on prisoners in the US who can volunteer for a dose of food poisoning for reduced sentences). Additionally, the use of antibiotics and antibiotic-like preservatives in animals on meats is breeding superbugs. The recent outbreak of a mutated form of E.coli is an example where 33 people died.
Also, much of the food our farmers grow spoils from mold and fungal attack. Ever seen zucchini kept too long in your fridge? It turns to mush. Have you ever paid good money for berry fruits, cherries and melons only to throw them out the next day because they went moldy?
Herbal-Active®, a natural food rinse and fruit and vegetable wash, is designed to make food safe and to extend the useful life of foods we buy. Just wet the surface of your fruits, vegetables and protein foods to safeguard you and your family from food pathogens and reduce food spoilage, keeping you healthy and saving you money in these tough times.
