Food safety at grocery stores after a hurricane

 WWBT in Virginia asks, what do grocers do in the aftermath of a hurricane?

In the aftermath of Hurricane Irene, supermarket Martins had to go through a list of inspections. The store checked the temperature of the foods, then an internal auditor double checked.

"We actually had visits from the health department and the department of agriculture," said Martins Regional Vice President, Jim Scanlon.

Martins passed with flying colors, but not all food stores could be as reliable.

That’s why shoppers like Autumn Harbour who lost power for nearly 5 days takes extra care when filling the cart.
