Right after watching the awesome CMAs tonight, I was disgusted to see an ABC News story about how many germs are on shopping carts. According to ABC News, “University of Arizona researchers tested shopping carts and found that their handles have more saliva, bacteria and fecal matter than public toilets.”
This story has received a lot of media coverage, and was obviously a result of some successful public relations pitching. The ABC News article talks about PureCart Systems, a mini car wash for your cart, that is being installed in grocery stores to calm shopper worries about germs. The ABC story contains a photo of the system courtesy of PureCart.
I just wanted to point out the smart PR efforts and this nasty find. Happy grocery shopping! 😉
