At least once a month in the U.S., there is a warning of another salmonella or E. coli infected food. At the University of Georgia's Center for Food Safety, a team of researchers has developed a product to combat these bacteria.. A natural spray that can kill these bacteria in less than a minute: Fit Fruit & Vegetable Wash.
Some fruits and vegetables, like tomatoes and apples, with smooth skins can be sprayed with Fit and then rinsed with water. Other foods, like broccoli, that have more surfaces need to soak in Fit Wash before rinsing with water.
Fit is licensed and sold by HealthPro Brands in Cincinnati and is being carried by a few local stores right now, but is available online as well. Bottled expressly for home use, food services, and industrial applications, the proprietary contents are the same for each market.
Fit Fruit & Vegetable Wash is 100 percent natural, and removes waxy substances on produce and kills bacteria from all sources, including handling, pesticides, and soil on fruits, vegetables, meats, and eggs. Fit is also removes germs faster - in less than a minute - than other food cleaners, and 98 percent more thoroughly, according to the developers.
