Corrugated boxes and temperature monitoring labels safeguard produce

A new study indicates that plastics involved with packaging fruits and vegetables in Canada could compromise the health of many customers throughout the country. Packaging Digest explains that a study from the University of Guelph that investigated the use of Reusable Plastic Containers (RUCs) found that this packaging strategy was compromising the quality of the produce they contained. The study deduced that a high percentage of these containers were not effectively cleaned, leaving the food they held susceptible to pathogens such as salmonella and norovirus.
