Frozen Berries Contaminated With Hepatitis A
You try to buy healthy food and then something like this happens! Luckily, most of the time we can trust the food we purchase at the grocery store, but somethings the food we buy isn't safe. This is a cause for concern!

Dirty Money: The Cash In Your Pocket Probably Has Poop On It :poop:
Fecal contamination of paper money and coins is not too surprising, but it is disgusting. Door knobs are another surface that might be contaminated with microscopic amounts of fecal matter and other unpleasant microbes.
