Frozen Food Danger?

#327001

China is reporting that frozen shrimp packaging from Equador has corona virus on it. A while ago it talked about salmon from somewhere showing the same.

It seems that the virus lives for ages at low temperature and therefore any frozen food that we have in our freezers needs to be handled with considerable care and followed by hand washing.

I have wondered about the broccoli, broad beans and runner beans apparently produced and sold to 'major supermarkets' by AS Green & Co in Herefordshire. No mention about a recall of the vegetables.

Sounds like a set up for 'look, it wiznay us eating bats or our top secret virus laboratory, it was those Ecuadoreans and their wily ways.'

“China is reporting that frozen shrimp packaging from Equador has corona virus on it. A while ago it talked about salmon from somewhere showing the same.”

Somehow anything China reports about the corona virus I tend not to believe, me. Even if the frozen shrimp were contaminated with the virus, after thawing & cooking it would have been washed away in the water used to thaw them and deactivated by cooking, IMHO.

The OP was about virus on the packaging, not the product itself. The risk being presumably you could transfer the virus to yourself after handling the packaging.

Having said that, I tend to think that person-to-person infection must be far more likely than surface-to-person infection. Otherwise I reckon we'd be hearing far more about cases of shop workers, post delivery people and other occupations where items are handled by multiple persons.
