    Public Health - Lost in the Debate About Bags

    The potential health risks associated with the repeated use of reusable carry bags for groceries from bacterial cross contamination are usually ignored or dismissed.

    The Facts

    • Conventional plastic shopping bags provide a sterile, safe environment for transporting groceries. The suggestion that reusable bags could pose a health risk after repeated use is often dismissed as industry scare mongering.

    • This is more an issue related to pubic education about proper use, not about whether the reusable bags pose a health risk.
    • It is highly recommended that reusable bags be washed frequently, if not after every use, to avoid bacterial build up in the bag. Bacteria can cross-contaminate the food carried in the bag and could pose a health risk. Some scientific research has been done on this.
    • Health Canada, after reviewing the scientific research available (funded by the plastics industry), has taken action to protect public health and promote the proper use of the reusable bags.
