 In the summer, the number of patients with acute gastroenteritis in the hospital began to increase, especially the number of children with small illnesses soared. Yesterday, the reporter learned from the hospital that many children developed diarrhea and vomiting because they ate food directly from the refrigerator. Symptoms of poisoning such as fever. Doctors stressed that in the summer, household refrigerators should be cleaned and tidyed up, food should be stored separately, and it is best to use fresh-keeping boxes of PC, PE, PP and tempered glass.
 6~8 months "Fridge food poisoning" high incidence
 Zeng Jing, director of the Nutrition Department of the Armed Police Hospital, said that every summer from June to August, it is a high season for children's "refrigerator food poisoning." In summer, the external temperature is high, the frequency of opening the refrigerator is increased, the temperature in the refrigerator is not well maintained, the probability of bacterial growth is increased, and the frequency of children taking food from the refrigerator in the summer is greatly increased. The temperature of the refrigerator freezer is generally between 0 ° C and 7 ° C. This temperature has a significant inhibitory effect on the reproduction of most bacteria, which can delay the deterioration of the food, but will not kill the bacteria. Among them, some bacteria that are chilled in the cold environment, E. coli, typhoid bacillus, and staphylococcus aureus are still active in the refrigerator, and they continue to multiply and accelerate food spoilage. In addition, raw foods, even in the refrigerator, continue to metabolize, producing toxic metabolites.
 Some children's snacks can not put the refrigerator
 Zeng Jing reminded parents that all foods should be sorted and processed after being bought home. They should be packaged, sealed and placed in the refrigerator. At the same time, raw and cooked food should be stored in layers and cooked food should be placed on the upper layer.
 Moreover, different foods have suitable temperatures for storage, and foods of the same storage temperature should be put together. For her example: meat, such as pork and beef, should be stored at -18 ° C. If stored at -2 ° C ~ 5 ° C, the meat can be kept for up to one week; green vegetables should be at low temperature (not less than 0 ° C) environmental preservation, suitable storage temperature for cabbage, celery, onion, carrot, etc. is about 0 ° C; the best temperature for storing potatoes is 2 ° C ~ 4 ° C, suitable storage temperature for cucumber, eggplant, tomatoes, etc. is 7 ° C ~ Between 10 ° C, the pumpkin is suitable to be stored above 10 ° C, the optimal temperature for storing sweet potato is above 15 ° C, the temperature of banana preservation is about 13 ° C, the storage temperature of orange is 4 ° C ~ 5 ° C; the storage temperature of apple is - 1 ° C ~ 4 ° C; mango is 10 ° C ~ 13 ° C; papaya is 7 ° C; litchi is 7 ° C ~ 10 ° C, so bananas, mango, lychee, tomato, cucumber, bread, etc. should not be stored in the refrigerator. “These are also snacks that children love to eat. You can buy fresh food every time, don’t put it in the refrigerator.”
 Do not use PVC food wrap
 Food preservation requires three factors, temperature, humidity, and gas. Food is placed directly in the refrigerator to ensure temperature, but humidity and gas are not guaranteed. Zeng Jing advised parents not to use ordinary plastic bags to preserve food. “Many plastic bags and plastic containers are not food-specific. For example, PVC food wrap is very harmful to humans because of its ethylhexylamine (DEHA). It is easy to precipitate, and when it enters the human body, it has carcinogenic effects and harms the human body."
“It is best to use high-quality crisper in the refrigerator to avoid cross-contamination and reduce the possibility of infection.” Zeng Jing stressed that when purchasing the crisper, pay attention to confirm the materials used in the crisper, and choose PC, PE, PP and A crisper for toxic materials such as tempered glass. At the same time, it is recommended to choose a transparent and translucent material. It is easy to confirm the contents of the box without opening the box during use.
