Well. Looks like more incentive to become a better home cook. More cost effective, too to buy fresh only as much ss you need and chop, slice and dice as needed. Science: The more surface on a raw food, especially ground meat, as well as veggies and fruits the more surface area there is for bacterial growth. Freezing doesn't stop it once the contamination is there and the more handling -- you get the picture.You already know the stats on handwashing, right? Not good. You already know that the antiseptic sprays and such cannot compete with hot or cold running water and plain soap. So, become a better home cook and reduce your chances of food poisoning is my view. Don't cook, can't cook, eat out frequently? Simple. You can afford it! Most Americans are rich rich even when they're not, compared to others. Hire a home cook who uses whole foods that you buy; and practices only clean hands on deck and no cross contamination between meat or poultry or fish/ seafood and raw vegetables. You're welcome. P.S. Grow a home garden. You can even start in containers: the lettuce, peppers, herbs and more. No downside to home grown home cooking!

I truly can't imagine what kind of privileged life you have to have lived to sincerely believe that "hire a home cook" is feasible or reasonable advice for 99% of the population.

. No downside to homegrown home cooking! If only!! What do you do if you live in a senior apt building? Well, not to worry, I cannot even get to Trader Joe's. And I think it depends on the supermarket. Yes, I tried a spiralizer; sent it back. I have been a HOME COOK for over 50 years. My food is delicious.
