When talking with consumers about food safety, a common question is: “Do we need to wash bagged lettuce?”
According to The Partnership for Food Safety Education (fightbac.org) it is not necessary. They say “while it is important to wash most fruits and vegetables, if packaged greens are labeled ready-to-eat, washed or triple washed then the product does not need to be washed at home. Pre-washed greens have been through a cleaning process immediately before going into the bag. Re-washing and handling the greens creates opportunities for contamination.”
