    E. coli found on 50 percent of shopping carts

    Researchers from the University of Arizona swabbed shopping cart handles in four states looking for bacterial contamination. Of the 85 carts examined, 72 percent turned out to have a marker for fecal bacteria.

    Just to think all my friends made fun of me for wiping down, with clorox wipes, my shopping cart before putting my DD in the cart. I swear from the day she was born until she quit riding in shopping carts I toted clorox wipes and wiped them down everytime.

    I worked with the general public and I swear I have seen...

    1. Babies gnawing on shopping cart handles.

    2. Toddlers walking barefoot in the grocery store as well as wal-mart restrooms.

    My conclusion, as a teenager , was that the general public is just nasty. This article proves me right.

    Ewww... just ewww...

    I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it.

    My son works in a grocery store-- they do not clean the carts. It's up to us. I use sanitizer before getting into my car, after leaving the store...and while shopping, I avoid touching my face. Gross, isn't it?
