FDA say yes, all avocados
It’s recommended that you wash all produce —including the skin — before eating or cutting into, even if you’re not planning to cut the skin off. The bacteria could be transferred from the knife to the fruit.
Use a produce brush to clean the avocado.
Giving an avocado a wash before cutting would make it wash number 3 for a SlimCado. Follow FDA guidelines, but we just wanted you to know how much we care about food-safety.
