Do not wash produce with soapy water, rinse thoroughly instead

Grant Neighbourly Lead from Johnsonville

Two conflicting statements from the government follow. The first was broadcast on Neighbourly recently:
www.neighbourly.co.nz... states: 'Take out produce when you get home, and wash first in soapy water to protect against the virus, then rinse to remove any soap residue wipe down packaged goods with a soapy clean towel, then dry.'
BUT the advice has since been amended on the covid19.govt.nz website to:
covid19.govt.nz... states: 'for any fresh produce it is always a good idea to rinse them off with clean water, although using soap, disinfectant or detergent is not recommended as this could affect the taste and may cause stomach upsets.'
