Health Canada is reminding Canadians to take steps to prevent cross-contamination of foods when shopping with reusable grocery bags and bins.

As an environmental choice, many Canadians are now shopping with reusable bins, plastic bags and cloth bags to reduce the amount of plastic they are using. Health Canada supports the proper use of these products, but it is important that Canadians use them safely to prevent cross-contamination of food with bacteria that can cause foodborne illness.

Because these bags and plastic bins are reused frequently, they can pick up bacteria from the foods they carry, or from their environment (the ground, the back of your car or the items stored in them between grocery trips). ... 76-eng.php

I shop at Sobey's for the most part, but other places too, but I must say that one of the reasons I do shop at Sobey's (IGA) is because of customer service. One of the things I really like is that when my bags are groady (is that a word?) they exchange them for free!

I tried washing them, but that didn't work very well.
