You need to wash them. Fill a sink with water and pour in 1 cup of vinegar. (Small amount, just use a big bowl and glug in some vinegar.) Put your fruits/berries/vegetables in the water and completely submerge. You may have to swish them around. Let sit in the water 10 minutes. Drain. Rinse if desired. I then spread them on a clean towel to dry.

I do not trust any label. People in monitoring agencies are just human and can bribed or bought off. Be diligent with the health and safety of your family.

With this latest flu-like germ, the news reported to use a chlorine bleach wash...1 teaspoon of bleach in one quart of water to clean away this bacteria.

I told DH I used vinegar in water to do that and he said vinegar would not kill every bacteria and if it was suggested to use chlorine bleach to use it.

So that will mean a double wash...first with the diluted bleach...then with clear water.

I can go back to purchasing heads of lettuce, but the spinach is always bagged.

I've detected a slightly different odor on some of the prewashed foods. --It can't be the Freshest produce for sale. I'll try the clever vinegar idea.
