onzalo Erdozain: Real Housewives of Miami practice food safety and zoonotic diseases prevention, style

I couldn’t care less about Real Housewives of Miami, however I will admit one of the wives got something right – her use of hand sanitizer after visiting a pig farm.

Petting zoos and farms have all been linked to different kinds of outbreaks, from E. coli to salmonella, so when petting an animal, either wash your hands or sanitize them. However, if you are going to season a whole pig in your kitchen, don’t use your oven mitts and dish towels to hold it and then place those same items on your countertop. Always use separate utensils for raw and cooked foods, including cutting boards if possible.

Really, I just happened to walk into my living room as the events unfolded. Word.
