Imported Grapes – 86% of imported grapes (i.e. Chile) sampled were found to contain pesticides. Spinach – 83.4% of spinach sampled were found to contain pesticides. Potatoes – 79.3% of potatoes sampled were found to contain pesticides. Bell Peppers – 68% of bell peppers sampled were found to contain pesticides.
