    Unlikely to do harm y washing and might do some good. Wash what ever you can, heck even home grown gets a good going over. Wash it.

    Do you think rinsing off - spraying water on - a prewashed bag of "salad" cleans it?

    open
    open bins of veggies or fruit, we wash before eating. salads in bags, are pre-washed. problem here however, is that they start going bad quick, due to all that water sitting in the bag with them.

    otherwise, we open bag, take out salad, and eat.

    So you cut the bag? Wash, do you put back in bag? Or just in bowl? I figured as it gets nuked till steam must escape (or bag explodes if you forgot to make hole) it’s likely safe.

    Indeed, many (though not all) food safety specialists advise against washing bagged lettuce or spinach. Why? First, because there's a good chance that if bacteria managed to survive commercial-scale washing with chlorinated water in the processing plant, a lot of them will survive your home washing, too.

    Consumers Union, on its website, advises consumers to go ahead and give those bagged, pre-washed greens an extra washing.

    The bottom line is — if you eat fresh lettuce, you're taking a small risk. An additional washing won't change the risk much, one way or the other. "If you want absolute safety for lettuce, you'd have to stir-fry it. Which they do in Asia!" says Robert Buchanan, Director of the Center for Food Safety and Security Systems at the University of Maryland.

    If it says pre-washed, I just eat it. Otherwise it gets washed.

    The health department loves to use that picture for food handlers classes.

    I rinse lettuce even if labeled ready to eat. I use Fit Fruit and Vegetable wash on everything else.

    I wash vegetables out on display. I don't do salad much, used to, not anymore. but I do get kale frequently. organic in a big bag. it says it's washed, I don't wash it. right into the pre heated pot it goes!!!

    We wash all salads, home grown or store bought. Cut off undesirable parts and eat.
