If you’re concerned about receiving a food delivery, consider how you’re going to open and handle it.
Here’s what Dr. Bihn suggests: Bring in the food, and clear off counter space for your containers. (If they’re in a bag, place the bag on the floor and remove them.) Open the containers in the designated spot, and transfer the food to a bowl, plate or one of your own storage containers. Throw away the bag, and wash the containers in hot, soapy water if they’re reusable. (Dispose of them if they’re not.) Clean the counter. Wash your hands. Eat.
Dr. Bihn acknowledges that we’re not all going to go through these steps every time we get a delivery, but, if you’re worried, this process may increase your peace of mind.
