What is the Dirty Dozen?

In 2011, the Environmental Working Group released an updated report that identified foods in the conventional, non-organic food supply that contained the highest number of pesticide residues. The worst offenders, which were nicknamed the “Dirty Dozen,” included:

 

  • Apples
  • Celery
  • Strawberries
  • Peaches
  • Spinach
  • Nectarines-imported
  • Grapes-imported
  • Sweet bell peppers
  • Potatoes
  • Blueberries-domestic
  • Lettuce
  • Kale/collard green
