  • Sweet Bell Peppers*
  • Celery*
  • Nectarines
  • Strawberries*
  • Cherries
  • Pears
  • Grapes (imported)
  • Spinach*
  • Lettuce*
  • Potatoes*


12 Least Contaminated so buy as is :)

  • Onions
  • Avocado
  • Sweet Corn (frozen)
  • Pineapples
  • Mango
  • Asparagus
  • Sweet Peas (Frozen)
  • Kiwi Fruit
  • Bananas
  • Cabbage

end handout info

All or nearly all 12 food items on the most contaminated list are grown locally, and at least six* of the items can be grown in home gardens in Toledo.

Many items on the least contaminated list are not grown around here.
