Pesticde Information

Is organic food pesticide free?

Not always. "Organic" is not synonymous with "pesticide-free" or "chemical-free". When nonchemical “prevention” strategies such as insect predators and traps fail, farmers are allowed to use USDA approved pesticides under restricted conditions. It is recommended to test organic food before eating them.
