A Note on Swine Flu

Share this post

A few customers have asked about Swine Flu, fruit, and our packing procedures here at FruitGuys. First some information: According to the CDC, Swine flu is transmitted primarily though human contact, not food; we have always recommended that all fruit and produce (organic or conventional) be thoroughly washed before consumption; none of the fruit in any of our current mixes comes from Mexico; and our production crews wear gloves while packing your produce as per general food safety standards. We take great care in providing you delicious, safe, farm-fresh produce and will continue to do so. We know that this flu is an important and concerning health issue and if you have any questions that we can address, please free to contact me personally. I thank you for your business and your commitment to wellness.
