A. Attention Getter at the grocery store
All of us have gone to the grocery store to pick up raw meat, whether it be chicken, beef or pork, or something like that. You put it in your cart and continue to shop. You start to head for the register and oh, you forgot something, so you go back and shop a little more. Then finally you get in line, and if you have my luck you pick the slowest moving line. 20 minutes has past since you put the meat in your cart. Finally, you get to your car and load the groceries and head home. Another 10 or 15 minutes has past. You get home, put the groceries in the kitchen, have to go use the bathroom because you didn't want to go at the store, and then maybe look through the mail real quick and then the phone rings. 15 more minutes go by. Finally that raw meat makes its way into the refrigerator or freezer. For 50 minutes the raw meat was at an unsafe temperature. May not seem like that much time, especially when foods can be exposed to unsafe temperature for a cumulative of 4 hours. But those 4 hours starts when the animal slaughtered. So when you take into consideration the time it took to first process the animal, the time it took to transport the meat from its original refrigerated source to a refrigerated truck, the time it took to remove it from that truck and deliver it to the grocer and the time it took the grocer to process the product and put it out for sale and then add the time you had the meat in your possession before you put it in your refrigerator how much time has that meat not been at a safe temperature? Something to think about
