(FDA) – The FDA is recommending that avocado lovers wash the skins before consuming.

While the recommendation may seem odd considering we don’t eat the peel of an avocado, the FDA says it’s the only sure way to prevent bacteria and dirt from transferring from the peel to your knife, to the inside that we do eat.

The FDA recommends scrubbing the avocado peel with a produce brush then drying it with a paper towel.
