Eating Flooded Garden Produce

If floodwater was contaminated with raw sewage, do not eat the produce it touched.
  •  Crops that can be washed thoroughly with disinfectant (bleach), peeled and/or boiled should pose minimal risks.
  • Crops that are eaten uncooked, especially leafy crops such as spinach and lettuce, should not be eaten because removing all of the contamination is so difficult.
