Wash All Produce!

Posted by in News

warning_toxicJust got an email from a friend with an interesting warning.  She was craving an at home spa night and that included putting slices of cucumbers on her eyes.  After about a minute, her eyes started burning and itching, became red, swollen and blotchy and lasted for hours.  She realized that she was having a reaction to the chemicals/ wax that was on the cucumber.  She had purchased a wrapped cucumber and didn’t think about washing it because she wasn’t planning on eating it.  Her lesson? That you should always wash produce, even if you think that its already been washed and is ready to eat (and even if you aren’t planning on eating it)!
