Spring is coming!
When you’re shaking off the winter with spring cleaning, it’s a great time to target harmful bacteria that can lurk on kitchen surfaces and even in your refrigerator. Salmonella, Staphylococcus, E. coli and Listeria are just some of the bacteria that may be hanging out in your kitchen. While you can’t see or smell BAC! — short for bacteria– they are everywhere, and they especially like moist environments. A clean and dry kitchen helps Fight BAC!® and protect you and your family from food borne illness.
