Environmental Working Groups “Dirty Dozen” & “Clean 15” has released this list to help us know what fruits and vegetables are safe and which ones are not.
Dirty Dozen: Clean Fifteen:
Extra care needs to be taken in washing, cleaning and preparing foods from the dirty dozen list. Make sure you follow the recommended instructions if you choose to eat the “Dirty” foods.
Bananas don’t appear on either list but apparently that’s because you have to peel the banana first. We’ve not seen any problem with bananas so far.
The safe thing is to make sure you clean all fruit and vegetables before eating and preparing them.
