From the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, some tips for buying and handling food safely.

Shop for non-perishable items first and leave refrigerated and frozen items for the end of your trip.

Place meats, poultry and seafood in separate bags from other foods.

Transport perishable foods in the back seat rather than a hot trunk. And when you get home, unload groceries right away.

If foods need to be kept refrigerated or frozen, make sure to store them safely within two hours of leaving the grocery store, or one hour in weather over 90°F.

If you use a reusable grocery totes, be sure to wash them often in warm, soapy water.

Use two grocery totes: one for raw meat, poultry and seafood, and the other for produce and ready-to-eat foods.
