小编摘要:德克萨斯州大学研究发现,家长给孩子装在便当盒里的午餐百分之九十以上都已在食用之前就超过了食品安全温度范围。这样的食物还能放心地让孩子吃吗?

导读:德克萨斯州大学通过研究700多名学前儿童的自带午餐发现,家长让孩子带的便当百分之九十以上都已在食用之前就超过了食品安全温度范围。根据美国疾病防控中心的标准,易坏的食物在4-60摄氏度的环境下不出两个小时就没法食用了。因此,专家建议可以在打包午餐时使用冰袋降温,并让孩子到校后及时拿出放入冰箱存放。

If you're packing lunch for your kid, chances are it will end up at unsafe temperatures before it's eaten.

That's according to a Texas study that tested more than 700 preschoolers' lunch packs and found less than two percent of the meats, vegetables and dairy products were in the safe temperature zone.

"It was a shock when we discovered that more than 90 percent of the perishable items in these packed lunches were kept at unsafe temperatures," said Fawaz Almansour, a doctoral student at the University of Texas in Austin.

His study, released on Monday in the journal Pediatrics, is the first to check how the food that kids' bring to school is doing about an hour and a half before lunchtime.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, perishable foods kept between 40 degrees and 140 degrees Fahrenheit (4 to 60 degrees Celsius) for more than two hours are no longer safe to eat.

Although 45 percent of the packed lunches included an ice pack and 12 percent were kept in refrigerators, nearly all of the perishable foods were in the danger zone.

That means bacteria that cause food poisoning -- like E. coli and Salmonella -- could be multiplying quickly inside the sandwiches that kids eat, Almansour said.

According to the CDC, one in six Americans gets food poisoning every year, but it is unclear how many cases are caused by lukewarm sack lunches.

"This study is an eye-opener more than anything else," Almansour told Reuters Health. "It shows there is a problem."

His recommendation? Pack the lunch with lots of icepacks, and have your kid take it out of the container at school and put it in the fridge.
