The Dirty Dozen

The Dirty Dozen

The Environmental Working Group continues to rank fruits and vegetables that have the highest levels of pesticide residues.  Strawberries, grapes, peaches, cherries, and tomatoes top  the list of fruits.  Strawberries themselves had as many as 54 different pesticide residues earning them a spot on the so called “Dirty Dozen” list.  Of course, the pesticides apply only to conventionally grown fruit.  This may push some consumers in favor of organic summer fruit?

The gComply and gComply Plus Contaminants Modules provide the regulatory background for pesticide and other contaminants.
