What’s The Germiest Place In Your Refrigerator?

Before you eat that carrot or lettuce, you should know that recent studies show the germiest place in your refrigerator is the produce drawer.

The produce drawer in your refrigerator is a haven for microbes, according to NSF, a non profit, international public health organization, and reported at msn.com. Here’s what NSF found in produce drawers… yeast, mold, Salmonella and Listeria.

Hey, wait a minute, that’s where you keep the healthy food, right? How can this be happening? Experts say the veggie drawer is the perfect environment because it is moist and dark and that’s what germs love, even in the refrigerator.

So what do you to clean this up? Experts say not to panic. Just avoid placing unwashed veggies next to pre-cleaned ones and wash the vegetable drawer each week with warm running water and dish soap. Also, keep the fridge at or below 40 degrees F.
