Max Armstrong looks at a food list that aims to scare consumers about fruits and vegetables

Max Armstrong shares insight on the newest Environmental Working Group's "Dirty Dozen" pointing to fruits and vegetables with chemical residues. Crop Life America points to the fact that this list cherry picks EPA data to provide a scare tactic and not fruit or vegetable identified had residues far below safety levels set by the environmental agency.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
