A new study released by CBC News found that almost half of organic fruits and vegetables tested in locations across Canada over the last two years are contaminated with pesticides. And almost 2 percent of the samples tested actually violated the maximum allowable limits for the presence of pesticides, according to data provided by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA). This upper limit is the amount set for any type of produce, not just organic.
The concern is that so much organic produce is contaminated. Consumers of organic produce in the U.S. trust the producers to provide a pesticide-free alternative to the conventionally-grown produce lining most grocery store shelves. This quickly becomes a dangerous game of “WHO DO YOU TRUST.” While the amount of organic produce contaminated by pesticides is unacceptable, the non-organic situation is even worse.
