Researchers from the University of Arizona swabbed shopping cart handles in four states looking for bacterial contamination. Of the 85 carts examined, 72 percent turned out to have a marker for fecal bacteria.
The researchers took a closer look at the samples from 36 carts and discovered Escherichia coli, more commonly known as E. coli, on 50 percent of them — along with a host of other types of bacteria.

Yeah it is nasty. The store I shop at provides hand wipes and I always use them to wipe the cart or basket handle.

EWWWW! It is really gross bleh.gif A good thing here is that bigger stores keep their shopping carts outside, and especially in the winter low temperatures kill a lot of the nasties
