Studies have shown there are 1 million germs on just ONE shopping cart handle* and that food-borne bacteria is the cause of 75 million illnesses, 325,000 hospitalizations and 5,000 deaths annually.**
A nationwide survey conducted in October 2005*** found that consumers:

  • are concerned about their exposure to bacteria and viruses in public places.

  • are taking action by purchasing antibacterial products.

  • are aware that shopping carts increase their exposure to bacteria and viruses.

  • want their shopping carts purified.

  • 74% of consumers indicated that they would most likely switch (33% indicated they would definitely switch) from the grocery store they shopped at most often to one that offered purified carts.

Contamination potential

According to a four-year study conducted by the University of Arizona's Environmental Research Lab and sponsored by Clorox, grocery carts are veritable petri dishes teeming with human saliva, mucus, urine, fecal matter, as well as the blood and juices from raw meat. Swabs taken from the handles and child seats of 36 grocery carts in San Francisco, Chicago, Tucson, and Tampa showed these common surfaces to rank third on the list of nastiest public items to touch, with only playground equipment and the armrests on public transportation producing more disgusting results. In terms of playing host to germs and bacteria, the carts are far worse than public toilets, which at least are cleaned more often. Bacteria and viruses such as E.coli, staphylococcus, salmonella, and influenza can live on grocery carts, a sorry fact most shoppers are blissfully unaware of.
