Store groceries in transparent containers….

Filed under: Did you Know,Food,Health and Nutrition,Safety — ramsblog @ 5:48 pm

Recently received an email about seeing a dead mouse in a bag of lentils. A person bought a 8lb bag of toor dhal took out some to prepare food, and poured the remaining to a canister. While doing so, noticed something unusual and figured it was a dead little mouse. hmm… that’s not good. glad they took it back to the store and communicated an issue to the distributors or packing company.

At times, it might be an accident that things get into the sacks of grains at the packing locations, however the best thing that we can do from our side to be cautious is, I think to have these poured into our own transparent canisters (like this person did) so contents can be visible and we be alert before cooking them.

Moral: Pour the grains out of the non-transparent bag into a transparent air tight containers before using any part of it.
