The growers treat the harvesters like slaved and provide no rest room facilities so they go all over the vegetables! The growers value profits over safety.

I ate some spinach grown in my garden earlier tonight, sautéed along with mushrooms, and later a pear. I was vomiting just a couple hours later, and I'm trying to figure out why. Maybe it was the spinach.
