Promote Food Safety at Home with Eat Cleaner Food Wash

Updated on March 12, 2011

Are you concerned about making sure that the food that your family eats are truly clean?

With Eat Cleaner, you can take matters into your own hands, quickly and easily removing potentially harmful substances from fresh produce as well as seafood and poultry items before serving them to your family members and friends.

With so many pesticides being used in farming – as well as waxes and surface debris that can build up during shipping and storage of produce -- it's certainly important to be concerned about just what substances might be lurking on the surface of the produce and other foods that we bring into our homes.

About Eat Cleaner

Eat Cleaner is an all-natural food wash product that is both odorless and tasteless. Containing only ingredients that are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Eat Cleaner provides a safe way to remove pesticides and produce and potential sources of bacteria, like surface debris and waxes, from produce and poultry an seafood.

The product was developed by the father and daughter team of Mareya Ibrahim, an experienced food marketing professional, and Shawki Ibrahim, Ph.D., Colorado State University Professor Emeritus of Environmental Science. The pair grew concerned over food safety issues and decided to seek a solution. According to Dr. Ibrahim, "We got really frustrated over the fact that foodborne illness has not decreased over the last three years despite government agency initiatives"

Eat Cleaner Effectiveness

While consumers typically use water to clean fresh produce before cooking or serving, that may not be sufficient for food safety. Dr. Ibrahim states, "Consumers and food service should really question how thoroughly their food is cleaned if they're just using water." In an independent laboratory test designed to assess the effectiveness of Eat Cleaner, results indicated that the product removed up to 99.9% of surface pathogens including E-coli and Salmonella, from contaminated produce. The bacteria were not removed effectively from the water-cleaned control sample used in the experiment.

Additional Product Features

In addition to promoting food safety, Eat Cleaner can also extend the shelf life of fresh produce. For example, browning is inhibited in sliced apples rubbed with Eat Cleaner. You can also use Eat Cleaner to clean cutting boards and countertops that may have come into contact with contaminated produce, seafood, or poultry.
