foods and neutropenia

Bobbye, my understanding of the food issue is that most frozen, canned and cooked foods are not a problem. What you have to be wary of is any raw fruits or vegetables that cannot be peeled. The outer surfaces can harbor bacteria, especially soft or rough-surfaced things that cannot be scrubbed.
