Poultry Poison

More than half of the poultry in Canada is contaminated by Salmonella bacteria ­ which can cause diarrhea, vomiting, fever, and sometimes death! A recent television program followed a typical grocery shopper home to track the spread of the bacteria in the home. A few minutes after the groceries were put away, the TV crew came in and found traces of their test substance (not salmonella) all over the walls, the cupboards and on the rest of the groceries. Wash your hands thoroughly after handling poultry and isolate it from your other food.
