Those reusable grocery bags may be good for the environment but not so much for your health.
Reusable shopping bags may be covered with germs. Our friend, microbiologist Charles Gerba, says reusable grocery bags can be contaminated with e coli because few people wash them out after carrying home their fruits and veggies and meat.
So make sure you wash yours in hot water and dry it thoroughly before reusing it.
