FDA: Wash Your Avocados Before Eating Them

Wash your avocados before eating them

Guacamole lovers, listen up – you may want to start washing avocados before you eat them.

. While the recommendation may seem odd considering we don’t even eat the peel of an avocado, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. That’s the latest advice from the FDA says it’s the only sure way to prevent bacteria and dirt from transferring from the peel to your knife to the insides that we do eat. 

Just like with any other store-bought item like fruits and vegetables, it’s also a good idea to wash them before you eat them.
