Updated! E Coli - Top 10 E. Coli Test Kits & Products
Based upon the most recent E. coli threats, I thought it would be a good idea to write this blog. I've always been a bit of a hypochondriac and the news about a popular restaurant chain being a potential source of E. coli was a bit unsettling. Then when I heard that chopped romaine lettuce has also been linked to dozens of cases of E. coli, I became over-the-top concerned. While I don't live in the immediate area of outbreak, who's to say it's contained to just those areas? Again, my hypochondria setting in! Nevertheless, wouldn't we all rather be safe than sorry when it comes to potential illness?
So, what can you do to avoid contamination? Test, test and test again! I've done some research and have found a few products that live up to their claims. If you're like me, you're going to grab one (or three) of these NOW!
