Remember to wash all your fruit and vegetables regardless or organic or not, store bought or farm fresh. We are living in weird day and age and simple safety measures can go along way.

My exception to the rules are food from my own garden, no sprays, chemicals, or tainted soil so I know it's then it's ok not to wash ;)
