Secrets of Success

Check Containers When Grocery Shopping




I lift the plastic lid on items like sour cream, cream cheese, tubs of butter, etc. to make sure that the foil/plastic wrap covering the product is still in place. A couple of times I've found that its been slightly torn or peeled back, so I had to go back & exchange the item because I didn't trust that it was safe. Also give bread & english muffins a good "once over" because I've found some icky moldy packages before (eek!). And I always, always, always check expiration dates on everything!!
