COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Strawberry season is upon us, but before you indulge in the sweet treat be sure to wash them well.
For the third year in a row, strawberries have topped the “dirty dozen” list from the Environmental Working Group.
According to CNN, researchers with the non-profit, non-partisan group rank pesticide contamination in dozens of fruits and vegetables.
Spinach came in the runner-up slot; followed by nectarines, apples and grapes.
The group says close to 70 percent of all non-organic food has some sort of contamination.
