I picked up some of these carrots at the grocery store. Being paranoid about anything packaged I messaged them and within an hour they called me saying their carrots and greens are not produced in the same factory as salads with croutons etc ..ok good...but said they cannot guarantee nearby farmland doesn produce wheat etc. Can this be a worry or is it generally safe to say everyday veggies are pretty much safe?? I mean I've never checked on my dole potatoes and i'm fine it seems?

Wash them if you are worried they might have somethng on them.

Edited to fix "worrtied"! What was that? where is that spell check when you need it?

I've had their carrots several times over the last few months and haven't had any problems with them. I just wash and peel them before cooking (and nibbling a bit while I'm chopping!).

Wheat grows above ground, carrots grow below ground. And even if they were raised in fields right next to each other, they should be okay. Plain, fresh veggies can not be contaminated, as long as you wash them well before using them.

Well...they never said they grow next to wheat..the lady on the phone didn't have that kind of information. I was just checking with people. As for sensitive...i have no idea yet how sensitive i am for sure.

Most of us don't worry about carrots or most produce. We wash it and enjoy.
