Many of us have gone out and bought a bunch of these bags to save on added garbage in the landfills and the cutting of trees.
These MUST be washed in the washer weekly or as used for meats & the like. Scientists checked peoples at a grocery back east. 80% had ecoli in them.
Few people wash them and they have blood leaked from meats and the like in them which in turn rots and becomes horrendous bacteria. Grocery clerks hate having to touch dirty bags. Be safe and be kind. Wash them often and keep them clean!
