Yesterday I was in my local granola, we’re-organic-salt-of-the-earth grocery store, Choices (
no website, as far as I can tell). I wandered by the produce section, and noticed this oddity: a fruit and vegetable cleaning spray.
In principle, I can understand the need for such a product. Who knows what pesticides or other nasties are on our supermarket produce? I don’t, but I’d hope that my local organic store does. I was confused about the message this spray, in such close proximity to the stuff it’s meant to clean, was conveying:
- We don’t know where our fruit has been.
- We know where our fruit has been, and you’d better clean it.
- We know where our fruit has been, and better safe than sorry.
Hopefully it’s the third answer. And I’ll just use water to clean my fruit, thanks.
