People Have Been Rinsing Fruit In Bleach As A Precaution Of COVID-19!

This is not the move!

At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, people were concerned and doing anything they could to keep safe and healthy. People began to wash their food in bleach! The CDC published a survey and found that 39% of people surveyed had engaged and non-recommended high risk practices such as washing food products with bleach, applying household cleaning or disinfectant products to bare skin.

If you are worried about your groceries, it's still advised to always wash your hands before and after going to the store and wipe down containers like cans with a disinfectant. Make sure to just simply rinse your produce well with cold water.
