E.Coli Testing Kit: A Germ-A-Phobe's Best Friend

E.Coli Testing Kit: A Germ-A-Phobe's Best Friend

Food recalls seem to be at an all time high this year. From peanut butter to Listerine to pet food, nothing seems to be safe anymore. So while we wait for the FDA to get a handle on the situation, you may want to take matters into your own hands...

The MMS Safe Strips Food Testing Kit ($19.95) contains: Two E.coli test strips, two Salmonella test strips, a bottle of buffer solution and instructions on how to do it. Basically users will be mixing food with distilled water and buffer solution, preferably in a blender. The salmonella test strip produces results in thirty minutes, while the E.coli test takes an hour, so make sure you give it some time before digging in. Buy it from

Fit's Tip: While I think that testing everything you eat may be a bit excessive, even for me, you may want to consider taking a kit along while traveling or think about keeping it around the house in case another spinach recall hits the fan.

I think this would make me paranoid everytime I eat. I can imagine myself forgetting this for once and then sitting there debating over eating the food if I can't test it. I think I'd rather be optimistic and dive in to my food!
