Eat Your Fruits and Veggies … Safely!

Fruits and vegetables are packed with important nutrients needed for good overall health and should be a vital part of your diet. To prevent foodborne illness with your produce, consider taking these few basic steps. Wash your hands with warm water and soap before and after handling produce. Wash produce thoroughly with water before eating, cutting or cooking. Even if you plan to peel the produce before eating, it is still important to wash first. Washing fruits and vegetables with soap, detergent or a commercial produce wash is not recommended. Source: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
