Good for you that you’re look­ing to get more greens—but did you know you don’t re­ally need to wash those bagged greens that say “washed” on the la­bel?

“Re­wash­ing bagged salad greens that were washed be­fore be­ing pack­aged is very un­likely to cre­ate a safer salad,” says Food and Drug Ad­min­is­tra­tion pro­duce-safety ex­pert Michelle Smith. “The greater like­li­hood is that you’ll make a safe prod­uct un­safe be­cause of cross­con­tam­i­na­tion with bac­te­ria from your fin­gers, cut­ting boards, coun­ter­tops, or the sink.” Source: Nutri­tionAc­tion.com
