Dp has told me there is often rats in the warehouse getting into the fruit & veg, also snakes, frogs, spiders, and he recently saw someone drop a pallet of strawberries and repack them back into the punnets as best they could after they'd been on the ground, I wouldn't just be worried about the supermarkets handling of produce!

I always buy prepackaged lettuce, krist, I just wash it before eating it. We have a salad spinner which I love. I wash it just before eating rather than taking the chance of storing it in water left from the rinsing. I think eating freshly washed spinach is a better idea than not having it if you're craving salad!!

I work in the wholesale markets & the rats are bigger than small dogs!
Some if the things I have seen 😳 gross...
I was referring to handling from the farm through to the store shelf a lot of different variables that can effect the product quality & safety...

Reading these posts make me feel less of a weirdo about how i handle my food now lol, i thought i was over the top being so careful at what i buy and eat etc, now i am wondering if i should be more careful, the only salad i buy are tomatoes, cucumber, celery and carrot, i peel the cucumber and carrot but only rinse the tomatoes and celery. When hubby looks at me weird again about how i am washing my veges i think i will direct him here to read how normal it is for me to be doing it lol.

I pop them all into the sink with some cold water when I get home from the shop then wipe them over with the enjo fruit and veg cloth, it removes wax, dirt, dust, pesticides, fertilisers, fungi and bacteria
