Wooden Kitchenware

Are wooden spoons hygienic? How the US Government was proven wrong!

This is a question I get asked a lot. And even when it is not said, I sometimes get the feeling that it's what's going through a persons mind when they look at my wooden eating spoons, at a craft fair say. While I have always instinctually thought that yes, they are just as hygienic as steel or plastic, this very question has been addressed by actual scientists with PhDs and Professorships and everything. How convenient.
