Environmental Working Group (EWG) analyzed pesticide residue testing data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Food and Drug Administration to come up with rankings for the following popular fresh produce items. All 48 foods are listed below from worst to best - lower numbers indicate more pesticides.
Note: EWG analyzed pesticide tests of 48 popular produce items. Domestic and imported versions of three items – blueberries, green beans and snap peas - showed sharply different results, so those domestic and imported items are ranked separately. As a result, the Shopper's Guide displays 51 entries.
