An April, 2024 Consumer Reports study revealed concerning levels of pesticides in various U.S. produce, raising health and safety alarms. The report highlights the presence of banned pesticides and the dangers of “regrettable substitutions” where one harmful pesticide is replaced by another potentially worse. This has led to a rigorous reevaluation of acceptable pesticide limits to better protect consumers, particularly vulnerable populations like children and pregnant individuals.
