Warning-Cyclosporidia contamination in produce

FAQ

Posted by Danmcn61 on 5 years ago Just read an online news article about an outbreak of cyclospora infections in the midwest, and the illness was probably contracted from produce that was grown in tropical or sub-tropical regions. Please everyone, WASH your produce before eating it or making a juice from it, even if it is organic. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/stomach-bug-linked-produce-sickens-285-people-11-132017385.html

    The most important thing to do is just plain rinsing with running water. The mechanical action of running water will wash away the um...(how to put this delicately?) ....the fecal bacteria (coliforms) that are too small for the naked eye but trust me, they are there. They are there because the field workers don't have facilities to relieve themselves, so they just do it right there in the fields and get back to work. Rinsing washes away the small clumps of dirt also.

    After that, I like to soak the produce in a dilute solution of apple cider vinegar and tap water (for a few minutes is all you need, and there are commercially available rinses too) in order to reduce the pesticide residue. You can't completely eliminate it, but you can reduce it. One more rinse with running tap water and you're all set. It may sound like a lot, but it is really easy and quick once you get the hang of it.
