. . .Veggie-borne crud is on the rise! Those pre-cut and allegedly pre-washed salads are not the only culprits. The FDA has even sent a crabby letter to the California leafy greens people. When they get grumpy, watch out--the FDA has access to drugs, don’t forget. Even washing at the plant (manufacturing kind) is not the whole answer, because germies can get in through cracks in produce. Unless you fancy slurping down evaporated irrigation ditch water and the occasional pit stop by field workers, wash, wash, wash.
