Q.

slug/snail eggs on produce

Zone Puyallup, WA 98371 | EmGrace#17 added on June 27, 2017 | Answered

I recently bought a container of organic mixed greens and found what looks like slug/snail eggs on the underside of spinach leaves. How do I clean produce? I threw this container out and have been afraid to eat greens since. Do they carry salmonella or other diseases? Will soaking in salt water kill the eggs and make them drop off the leaves? Do non-organic products use pesticides to prevent this? Thanks for your help. Sorry
