The Leachville Police Department recently made a great point on their Facebook page, you should always wipe down the handles on shopping carts.

The reason being, there could be drug residue on the handles and the drug(s) left behind could enter your system even if you haven't consumed it.

The department says drugs such as fentanyl or a similar substance can enter into your system when you come into contact with it.

Even worse, if your kid comes into contact with the drug residue on the handle it could affect them too.

Sure, this is very scary, but with the use of wipes at the entrance of most stores, you could avoid coming into contact with germs or drugs on the shopping cart handles.

Share this with others so that they too are aware of this danger. The holidays are rapidly approaching and we will all soon be coming into contact with the handles on shopping carts.
