Never Lose an Ice Scoop Again
FSW Product Expert on 8/6/2010
Storing an ice scoop in the ice itself is a big no-no, because the scoop handle can harbor bacteria and germs from a person's hands. Since ice is a ready-to-eat food, any bacterial contamination will be transferred directly to unwary customer. For safety all the way around, it is better to store the ice scoop outside the bin in a special holder that keeps the shovel end from contacting any potentially hazardous materials. Or, you could buy an ice bin like the B322S. It has a built-in scoop holder inside the bin that keeps the scoop out of the ice and readily at hand.
