2. Avoid fruits and vegetables that are bruised, cut or otherwise damaged.

3. Shop for cold foods last so they don’t warm up while you’re shopping for everything else.

4. Leave cracked or soiled eggs at the store. Cracked shells and surface dirt can cause cross contamination.

5. Place raw meat, poultry and seafood in disposable plastic bags to keep their juices from leaking onto other items in your shopping cart. Most grocery stores provide these bags for free.
