Client in the News: Debbie Meyer, Co-CEO of Housewares America, Weighs in on Benefits of Washing Fruits and Vegetables


Are Consumers Safer When Fruits and Vegetables are Washed?

insideJoTo PR client, Debbie Meyer, was featured in an article in InsideHook titled, Does Rinsing Fruit and Vegetables Actually Do Anything?

When everyday habits are left unevaluated, it can easily spell bad news for the environment (single-use plastic) or personal wellness (poor posture). Information is king. It helps us live more thoughtful lives.Thus, for illumination on the world of fruits and faucets, the author reached out to a bevy of nutritionists and food safety professionals, to hear their thoughts on washing down our fruits and vegetables. They agreed, unilaterally, that washing is a good idea. But they added a bit of nuance to the topic, expounding on how fruit gets contaminated in the first place, and more effective methods for hosing it down before it heads to your mouth.

“You have no idea what is on that produce. There could be bacteria from the hands of people who handled it in the grocery store, there could be waxes, there could pesticides. When you cut into a piece of fruit, like a melon for example, you contaminate the entire fruit with whatever was on the surface. To reduce waste in my kitchen, I use cloth towels to wipe down fruit, and wash them in the laundry.”
