Katie Price’s biggest controversies might be behind her. But like most who choose the spotlight, the glamour model turned television personality still has her critics.
When it comes to those keyboard warriors, nothing is safe. Apparently not even the 38-year-old’s food.
Price, who was formerly known simply as ‘Jordan’, shared a photograph of the contents of her fully stocked fridge to Instagram over the Easter weekend, with the caption, “Love my weekly shopping.”
Stuffed with cold-pressed juices, soups, fruit, vegies and yoghurt, it looked healthy enough. But followers were quick to point out an apparent risk…
“You need to sort the fridge out, cheese dairy at the top, then cooked meats under then raw meat at the bottom,” wrote one follower. “Too much cross contamination.”
“This fridge is giving me the fear,” wrote another. “Store your food properly!!”
And, “This makes me feel really uncomfortable – raw meat on the same shelf as cooked meat and above fruit. Nooooooo!”
While dozens joined the chorus of criticism, others came to the mother of five's defence.
"You people criticising how she stocks her fridge seriously need to get a life ... sad sad people ... no matter what this woman does someone has always got to put her down," wrote one fan.
"I can't believe some people actually think you can get food poisoning from sealed packs near each other in a fridge. If they were open that's different, but seriously?! What about when they are all together touching in the shopping trolley? God help us all we're gonna get ill," another commented.
According to the Australian Food Safety Information Council, raw meat, seafood and poultry should be kept in the coldest part of the fridge, which is usually the bottom shelf.
If these items must be stored on higher shelves, the FSIC advises that they are stored in leak-proof, sealed or covered containers to prevent potential food-poising bacteria from dripping onto other items.
Each year there are roughly 4.1 million cases of food poisoning in Australia; one million of which result in visits to a doctor, 31,920 in hospitalisation and, tragically, 86 in death.
Cut the crap.
