What do you need to pay attention to when eating fruit in summer?
Fruits and vegetables should be kept intact, normal appearance, fresh and odorless. Whatever the cause of fruit trauma, we should be cautious when the shape is not good and the color changes. If the fruit surface is slightly spotted or a small amount of moth, use knife to dig out rotten, moth-eaten parts, and the flesh parts around more than 2 centimeters. If the area of mouldy, rotten and moth-eaten fruit reaches or exceeds 1/3 of that of fruit, it should be thrown away and not eaten again.
Before eating raw fruits and vegetables, clean them with water. Pay special attention to the parts that are not easy to clean, such as fruit pedicels, because they are easy to hide dirt, bacteria, insect eggs and so on. Ordinary fruits and vegetables can be rinsed with plenty of water, or soaked in water for another 10 to 20 minutes. Fruits that need peeling should also be washed first. Before cutting fruit, clean hands, tablets, knives and utensils first, and do not mix them with tablets and cutters for raw food, so as to avoid bacterial contamination.

Please note that refrigerators can only slow down bacterial reproduction, storage time should not be too long, too full will also reduce the refrigeration effect.
