A figure? Any? Some? None?
Each time there is an outbreak.
More bluster and balls...
Proof man, where is the proof using the same bag or re-using that bag has any impact on cross contamination.

From the above: "The final results of a year-long study by the food watchdog showed one in five fresh whole chilled birds was "highly" contaminated.
Almost 7 per cent of the 4,000 supermarket chickens tested also contained the bacterium on the outside packaging, from which it can easily transfer to other food in a fridge."
So in the face of clear evidence that both the birds and the packaging they are in are contaminated, you believe that virtue signalling about plastic carrier bags is more important than avoiding contamination.
"The bacterium causes vomiting and diarrhea among around 280,000 healthy people every year and can kill those with vulnerable immune systems. "
Still, not to worry, eh? Some bloke on the Internet who is worried about plastic carrier bags says there's nothing to be concerned about.

If you're so worried about contamination from wrapping paper, how on earth do you ever get out of a toilet ?

I've bagged (no pun intended) 4 freebies today, 1 from the butcher, & 3 from off the market with my fruit & veg. Also it's amazing how much rubbish an empty bread bag will hold too, & they're quite strong.

A/ How many do you need?
B/ Has any research been undertaken?
C/ Given that it has taken decades for the current research to have been undertaken and published why take the gamble with public health?

To be honest with newspaper reports, read the ones on The Daily Mail site. Reporting one thing one week then the total opposite the next.
Unless I can sit and read the original report the media reporting is based upon, I tend to take it all with a pitch of salt.
