May be unwell after visiting the supermarket for more than 2 hours
Because of its spaciousness and comfort, complete range and low price, the supermarket has become the favorite consumer goods store for ordinary people, and it is a place that many people must go to every day.
However, few people notice that under the clean and hygienic appearance of the supermarket, some small details or shopping habits that we are accustomed to, there are many hidden health hazards.
Hurry up and take a look at the five most dangerous “minefields” and take appropriate protection in advance.
Shopping carts, shopping baskets: “Cross-contamination” shopping carts, shopping baskets can be described as the biggest health hazard in supermarkets.
Due to the high degree of repeated use, the cross-position of raw and cooked foods is extremely contaminated.
As long as consumers take a closer look at these shopping tools, they will find that there are greasy marks on the handles of a large number of shopping baskets, stains on the grid at the bottom of the basket, and some shopping carts not only have stains but also rust.
In addition to these visible stains, the amount of bacteria hidden in these shopping tools is even more alarming.
Supermarket shopping tools are seriously cross-contaminated, but relevant national health standards have not yet been issued.
Supermarkets often clean or disinfect shopping carts, and shopping baskets are completely self-conscious.
The cleaning and disinfection of large supermarkets is relatively excessive, but there are also quite a few supermarkets or because of the limited number of shopping carts or baskets, or for cost considerations, they are often re-used only after a little cleaning or no cleaning, leaving a hugeHidden health.
Experts remind: individuals should strengthen their self-protection awareness when using public shopping tools.
Do not throw cooked food directly into the shopping cart. Put it in an outer packaging and isolate it before putting it in the shopping basket. After using shopping tools, do not directly carry food items. Wash hands and disinfect immediately after returning home; especially take care of children.
Too many parents like to put their children in the shopping cart and push them around. Children are easily infected with the bacteria on the cart. They should stop the child’s habit of “eat” and wash their hands and change clothes in time.
Cold food: Light creates “fresh” illusions. Too many people have encountered this situation.
When buying in the supermarket, the meat is bright red and translucent, the vegetables are extremely green, the fruits are particularly tender, and the bread is golden and tempting. But when you look at these things when you go home, the colors are often dull, and some even have an odor.
Why did the freshness of these fresh foods disappear in a short time?
The answer lies in the light.
Consumers only need to pay attention to observation, although the supermarket itself is well-lit, but the fresh food counters are densely lined with lights, and the color of the lampshades in different sales areas is not the same. Some raw meat areas use red lampshades, and vegetable areas use greenLampshade, orange lampshade for fruit area, yellow counter for bread counter.
It is the colored lights produced by different lampshades that cover up the defects of the food itself, making all kinds of fresh food look unusually fresh and moving, and provoking consumers’ purchasing desire.
Experts remind: colored lights are easy to cause people’s visual fatigue and illusion, causing the eyes to be dull and biased when distinguishing the quality of food, which will have a certain impact on the correct identification of goods.
In particular, the red light not only has the longest wavelength, but also easily attracts people’s attention and excitement, making people want to buy.
Individuals should pay more attention when shopping and try not to be disturbed by lights. Instead, look at the food and smell it to distinguish the quality of the food, so as not to buy rotten food and damage the body.
Home-made food: Shelf-life method of delicious and attractive stewed vegetables, salads, fried chicken, steamed buns, noodles, various pastries . Nowadays, all kinds of home-made foods that have been renovated have become the main products of supermarkets.
In a few market fairs and cooked food products without an unlicensed stall, most consumers feel that supermarket-made foods are more hygienic and safe, and they like to buy and eat.
Although the food hygiene status of most supermarkets is generally good, there are still a considerable number of homemade foods with different levels of health problems, of which the issue of shelf life is more common and prominent.
The use of packaging date instead of production date, or altering the date to deceive consumers is a “blind eye method” commonly used in some supermarkets.
Whether it ‘s buying staple food such as steamed buns, noodles, or cooked food such as beef sauce, cold dishes, supermarket staff usually weigh the plastic bag and date it. Although this date shows the day of the day, these foodsConsumers have no way of knowing exactly when it was produced.
Excessive, some producers and operators recklessly use food labels to alter the date, or secondary packaging, to extend the shelf life at will.
Experts remind: Consumers should try to choose fresh, fresh out of the pot products, and eat less cold dishes that are prone to spoilage; carefully check the labels such as the production date and shelf life when buying, and pay attention to whether the packaging is intact and the label is incomplete.Do not buy broken packaging, if necessary, smell the nose with a smell; it is best to reheat the cooked brine products, and it is best to add some vinegar, garlic and other condiments to buy cold salads; unless you should be alertDiscount promotions for homemade foods. Such activities are mainly for foods that expire immediately. The safety index is not high. Individuals should not buy in large quantities cheaply.
Taste food: lack of due protection In order to attract business, supermarkets often put ham sausages, meatballs or boiled soup in front of counters for customers to taste for free. Many people are also willing to try, but few peopleNote the health problems of trying to eat.
It is often seen that some salesmen are processing food and sipping drinks to promote sales.
The tasting products are also placed open, continuously exposed to the air, and without any dust protection measures, they are placed in lunch boxes and paper cups freely for customers to eat.
There are also some customers who try to pinch and taste it directly, or pick it up and smell it and put it back, which is likely to cause secondary pollution.
Experts remind: Consumers should pay attention to whether the promotional staff of processed foods standardize the operation before trying it. If they do not work with masks and gloves, or if they do not take necessary dustproof measures such as “transparent glass plate isolation” for the sample, they should refuse.Consume to avoid “disease from the mouth”; pay attention to the outer packaging of the product to try, see the production date and shelf life without problems; use disposable toothpicks or paper cups when eating to avoid endangering the health of others.
Environmental occlusion: long-term stays are easy to prevent supermarkets are often lingering because of their spacious and comfortable products.
However, the closed supermarket lacks fresh air, the flow of people is usually blocked, and air pollution is heavy. If the stay is too long, it may easily cause headaches, dizziness, dullness, nausea and other uncomfortable symptoms, and serious may cause hidden dangers to the human body.
Weak elderly people, children, pregnant women and people with underlying diseases should pay special attention.
Experts remind: The best time for individuals to shop in the supermarket is not more than 2 hours.At the same time, individuals should try to avoid entering supermarkets in crowded schedules.
People with chronic bronchitis, hypertension, emphysema, pulmonary heart disease, and hypertension, as well as pregnant women, the elderly, and children, should consciously control their stay in the supermarket and leave in time if they feel uncomfortable.
