Commercial food that is preserved for room-temperature storage spends a lot of time in warehouses crawling with rats and cockroaches before you buy it. And any bug-and-rodent-free warehouses that might exist out there probably stay that way through regular and generous distribution of rat and roach poison. If you saw it, you would wash or at least wipe off that can of beans or tetra-pak of rice milk before you open it.
