    If you wash "organic" produce in a chlorine solution, it voids any NOP Organic® standard of production.
    Does washing an organic tomato in tap water, which has chlorine in it, "wash away" the "organic"?  Or was the only thing "organic" about the tomato was the plastic label glued on it?

    How does chlorine change the tomato or strawberry or lettuce by washing it with it?

      Gerri, the concentration of chlorination used to "disinfect" produce is far stronger than tap water.

      Your washing produce at home will not change how it's grown, and packaged.
