With today’s busy lifestyles, there doesn’t seem time for a pit stop, much less a full trip, to the grocery store, leaving many with thoughts of groceries delivered to the front door.
But when the food comes knocking, there can be risks, local health officials warn.
Jackson County food inspector Whitney Kovener said a number of door-to-door meat salesmen have visited area homes attempting to sell products without permits to do so.
“It’s more so in the country, but they do do it in town,” Kovener said. “It’s generally a pickup truck with a chest freezer.”
