Title: The effectiveness of different wash processing methods on spinach and lettuce
Author: Barrera, M.J.; Blenkinsop, R.; Warriner, K.; Institute for Community Engaged Scholarship
Abstract: Cross-contamination is when bacteria from one food item transfer to another. Lettuce has less bacteria than spinach. Just washing vegetables has only limited effectiveness in removing bacteria. The overall effectiveness of the wash process is dependent on the amount of bacteria pre-wash and low water temperature.
