Police warn to wipe down shopping carts, but not because of germs

(NEWS10) - A message an Arkansas Police Department posted on Facebook went viral on Thursday.

It warned people to wipe down the shopping cart because touching it could be dangerous.

The issue isn't the germs, it's the dangerous drug fentanyl. If you get it on your hands, it could make you very sick if someone who uses it leaves residue on the cart that could be dangerous.

Local law enforcement officials say that it's better to be safe than sorry.

"While we don't want to be alarmist, it's just good to know how dangerous these drugs are."
