Through my year of being with pampered chef I've heard about our cutting boards being made out of polyethalyn or however you spell it and how it keeps germs from being absorbed into the board. I've been told that restaurants are required to not use wooden cutting boards because they absorb bacteria. So I tell these things to my guests. Anyway, at a show yesterday a lady told me her husband makes wooden cutting boards for his mom's business or something like that and that he had to do a big study and research wooden cutting boards and if they are safe. She said his research concluded that its false that wooden cutting boards are not safe and that they don't harbor bacteria. Does anyone know anything about this? What do you tell guests at your show about cutting boards?
