Some Home-Delivered Kits May Not Be Safe to Eat
The popularity of home-delivery meal kits is on the rise, at least in part because of a hot startup economy and increasing consumer interest in cooking and eating food at home (though many still lack the time or know-how to do it).
Unfortunately, purchasing food delivery kits—which are packed in dry ice and may often sit on a hot doorstep for hours—is not risk-free. Though 95% of consumers think these meals are safe, a study found that nearly half of all deliveries tested arrived at temperatures rendering the food unsafe to eat, according to a May 12 report in Food Safety News.
