EWG’s 2023 Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce™
Nearly 75 percent of non-organic fresh produce sold in the U.S. contains residues of potentially harmful pesticides, EWG’s 2023 Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce™ finds. In this year’s guide, blueberries and green beans join our Dirty Dozen™ list of the 12 fruits and vegetables sampled that have the highest traces of pesticides.
ITEMS TO AVOID
Blueberries back on the Dirty Dozen, with traces of several toxic pesticides
Green beans join the Dirty Dozen, tainted by a pesticide EPA banned 10+ years ago
Pesticides + poison gases = cheap, year-round strawberries
Apples doused with chemical after harvest
