Wash Your Fruit and Veg

We are all being careful when shopping during Covid-19, wearing masks and keeping the correct distance apart. Make sure you take extra care with unwashed fresh fruit and vegetables, especially leafy vegetables that can hide dirt and other contaminants. Also they could have been handled by other shoppers before you purchased them.

You should wash your raw fruits and vegetables before you peel, cut, eat or cook with them. You do not want dirt and germs on the surface to get inside when you cut. Wash or scrub fruits and vegetables under running water, unless the package says the contents have been washed.

Dry fruit or vegetables with a clean paper towel. Keep fruits and vegetables separate from raw foods from animals, such as meat, poultry, and seafood.

Refrigerate fruits and vegetables you have cut, peeled, or cooked within 2 hours or 1 hour if the outside temperature is 32°C or warmer.
