All-natural fruit cleaning spray helps prevent food-borne illnesses
FruitSpritz helps consumers clean fruit “on-the-go”
Salt Lake City, UT – The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that 1 in 6 Americans get a food-borne illness each year. Nearly half of those illnesses were linked to contaminated produce. Experts recommend scrubbing all produce under running water before eating to help reduce the risk of contamination. But that’s not practical when you’re out and about. Thanks to an innovative new product called FruitSpritz, you can now clean and eat fresh fruit on-the-go, minimizing the risk of food-borne illness.
FruitSpritz is an all-natural fruit cleaning spray. It uses the natural power of lemon juice and orange oil to get rid of germs and bacteria that can be picked up during the growing, packing and shipping process. Lemon juice and orange oil are both known to prohibit or clean microbial growth, even better than alkaline products. Simply spray FruitSpritz on the fresh fruit, ensuring that the entire surface is wet, and wipe off with a clean paper towel or napkin.
Cleaning fruit before consumption can remove up to 98 percent of the germs and bacteria that can cause the flu-like symptoms of food poisoning. This includes fruit with a peel or rind. Bacteria can travel from the outside to the inside of your fruit via your hands or the knife used to slice it. Common food-borne bacteria are Salmonella, Listeria and E-coli.
There are other things you can do to prevent food-borne illnesses.
- Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds in warm, soapy water.
- Refrigerate produce until you are ready to eat it.
- Choose unblemished, ripe fruits and vegetables when you shop.
- Clean the entire fruit or vegetable, even the parts you don’t eat.
FruitSpritz is available in a convenient 2-ounce spray bottle that can easily be tucked into a backpack, purse, briefcase, or diaper bag for ready use.
