The dirtiest place in the supermarket

VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – Forget the deli counter or the check-out; One of the dirtiest places at the grocery store are shopping carts.

Researchers at the University of Arizona say there’s more fecal matter on shopping cart handles than in a typical bathroom. They looked at a bunch of carts in a number of different states and found almost 75 per cent had the bacteria.

They say they actually found more fecal matter on the shopping cart handles than is typically found in a bathroom, mainly because bathrooms are cleaned more often.
