Fumigant pesticides, like chloropicrin are among the most toxic and difficult-to-control chemicals used in farming. Chloropicrin is prone to drift from the strawberry fields where it's applied to neighboring communities where kids live, learn and play.

I remember California strawberry growers were planning on using methyl iodide on their plants, which could give you cancer no matter how many times you washed the strawberry. Figures they'd come up with another way of killing their customers. Not to mention their workers, who have to pick their strawberries. Screw your public, we've got to protect our sales! (A quote from Monty Python . . . slightly revised.)

Pesticide, fungicide, herbicide, poison manufacturing must stop getting our $$ out of us! BUY ORGANIC. Force these chemicals out of existence!
