Unpasteurized Juices

Unpasteurized Juices

Whether you buy it at the grocery store, farmer's market or fruit stand, refrigerated fresh juice that has not been pasteurized may contain harmful bacteria including salmonella and E. coli. Make sure to only buy juice that is pasteurized. Food that is unpasteurized is required to be labeled as such. Unless the juice is squeezed fresh right in front of you, it's better to be safe than sorry.
