Former Willcox, Arizona tomato company Eurofresh employee sues companyby Karyn Zoldan on Dec. 03, 2010, under A Tisket, A Tasket, Desert Locavore, Health
The Eurofresh website states:
“We’re experts at growing greenhouse produce at a premium quality and certified pesticide-free with garden fresh flavor.”
According to a recently filed lawsuit by a former employee, this is not the case.
The dismissed employee said he “refused to sign or approve payment of invoices for the illegal chemicals because he had concerns about the “health and safety risks to both Eurofresh employees and the consuming public caused by the company’s unlawful use of chemicals … [and] also about the company’s potential criminal liability for knowingly engaging in such illegal activity.”

Who do you trust anymore? I occasionally bought Eurofresh tomatoes and cucumbers on the basis of being pesticide-free from Costco and Sunflower Markets.
How important is pesticide-free produce to you?
Will you still buy Eurofresh tomatoes and cucumbers?
