The perfect place to start with food safety is
at the shops, so take a second to check the use by date on food and while you’re
doing it also make sure the packaging is intact and canned food isn’t dented or damaged, so the bacteria that causes food posioning can’t get in and if you take some cooler bags with you to the shops your cold foods will stay colder for longer. When you get home put the contents in the fridge right away. But remember to put your ready-to-eat foods like
fruit and vegetables in a separate bag to your raw meats to avoid cross-contamination. Playing it safe with food only takes a few seconds
and it’s always worth it.
