Western Growers has partnered with the Alliance for Food and Farming to produce “How Safe Are Your Fruits and Veggies?”- a video featuring the residue calculator section of The purpose of this calculator is to show how small the residues found on fruits and vegetables are.

Using toxicologist Dr. Robert Krieger’s analysis, it has been proven that a child can eat hundreds of servings of a fruit and vegetable daily without running the risk of health issues due to residue. This calculator demonstrates how safe it is to eat fruits and vegetables, even if pesticide residue is present.
