I recently attended the annual ADA (American Dietetic Association) Food and Nutrition Conference Expo in San Diego where I had the opportunity to speak with a lot of food manufacturers regarding many issues. One such issue was food safety, and many said even if the bagged veggies/greens say PRE-WASHED and/or READY TO EAT – RINSE them well in a colander ANYWAY! This is from people that work in the companies that process these same veggies!

Remember: ALWAYS wash your fruits and veggies before eating, no matter what the package says!
