I think for the last 20 years or so, we've used cheap bamboo. Never any hygiene issue I'm aware of. We replace them every 5 years or so.
Before that we had a couple fancy wood boards.
Briefly tried the plastic ones somewhere along the line. Wife and I both hated them.
It only takes once....
And no I am not kidding..
There are and have been serious problems in the food industry and they are getting worse
, not better..
Yeah it's always in the back of my mind about that stuff. I guess we're pretty careful about washing and sterilizing. The boards get rotated with use and after washing and drying, they get a weak bleach treatment then sit in the window sil to dry and catch sun.
They are still wood though, and wood is not as good as the other materials for being sanitary.
If you buy good quality boards they are nice.
The problem is you just never know these days..
Better safe than the other options, none of those are good in any way.
The really bad thing about the problems is they are NOT fixing them, they are doing work arounds. Trying to smart their way around them, that is NOT working. Things are still getting worse as time goes on.
FIXING the problems cost MONEY, work arounds cost NOTHING.... Think about that one for a minute.... And think about what is running the whole food industry today. And the only thing that matters to them
.... Safety ain't it...
The recalls or issues are found only after something happens... That means after the consumers already have it.... Your Grocery Store is a customer too.....
Or if an honest inspector (One that isn't in their pocket) just happens to find it just by luck..... Good luck with that one most of the time...
These huge conglomerates control it all, they are massive and have power all the way into the highest parts of the GOV.....
