Tea towels can carry food poisoning risks, experts have warned. Escherichia coli is a normal flora of human intestine and it is released in large numbers in human feces.

Multipurpose towels (used for wiping plates, cutlery, kitchen surfaces, hands) had a higher bacterial count than single-use ones while humid towels were found to have a higher bacterial count than the dry ones.

Of the towels collected, 49 per cent had bacterial growth, which increased in number with extended family, presence of children and increasing family size.

The microbiologists found that roughly half of the 100 towels were growing risky microbes, including the potentially infection-inducing Staphylococcus (also known as "staph") and E. coli.

The food poisoning bacteria, which can be fatal for the elderly or the infirm, were more prevalent among families that had non-vegetarian diets.

MONDAY, June 11, 2018 (HealthDay News) - Family composition and hygiene practices are associated with the microbial load of kitchen towels, according to a study presented at the annual meeting of the American Society for Microbiology, held from June 7 to 11 in Atlanta. These warm and damp cloths are actually havens for bacterial growth say scientist and they are most commonly used in households where meat is eaten.

USING your tea towel multiple times in between washes could leave your family at risk of food poisoning, new research has found.

Their thorough research work reveals that the multiple use towel shows the presence of Escherichia coli.

The USDA also recommends taking several precautions when preparing food in the kitchen in order to prevent the spread of germs that could make you or your family sick.

"Humid towels and multipurpose usage of kitchen towels should be discouraged". The study determined that meat-eating households, large family homes, and homes with a lower socio-economic background also had higher rates of bacteria growth, The Independent reports.

Of the 49 towels that carried pathogens, nearly three-quarters grew coliform bacteria (a type that may include E. coli); 36.7 percent grew Enterococcus; and 14.3 percent grew staphylococcus aureus, a type of staph that can cause serious infections. They noted that 49 percent of the towels had growth of bacteria in them. But "it doesn't surprise me at all that something that's in a kitchen environment has bacteria on it".

So wash those used towels up every few days and enjoy your fresh, dry, disease-free kitchen.
