Fresh Vegetable Platter

I am invited to a picnic on the 4th. Someone is bringing a prepackaged vegetable platter. Has anyone ever had issues?

When I go to things like that, I usually try to get my food first. That way I don't have to worry about cc from folks using utensils from other foods or even gluten-coated fingers. But otherwise, I have never had problem with the packaged fresh vegetables.

I suppose that would depend on where it came from. I have seen some from places like Redi-Pac (sp?) that would probably be safe. I think they only do fruit and vegetable trays. Or maybe only vegetable trays. If it is done up at a store, it might be made alongside sandwich platters. Could you find out where it came from? If from a store, you could call the store and see how they are done up.

It would also depend, if the person arranging the veggies washed their hands before touching the veggies. I know that a lot of people walk in the kitchen, wash their hands, & then touch a cookie & still consider that they have clean hands. Also, did they empty the veggies onto a cutting board (bread crumbs) before transferring to a platter.

If you want to be happy & have a good time - take your own food. It is just easier to start out that way & no one will question it. Just explain that it is like the peanut allergy - one whiff & you are done in.

I reacted to pre-sliced fruits about a month ago. Figured out that they were cut up right next to the baking area at Whole Foods. All that flour.....settles everywhere. So now I cut my own fruits and veggies after washing them.

Be safe. Pack your own food.
