This photograph depicted a pregnant woman in the process of peeling an apple using a peeling implement after having washed a batch of apples in the kitchen sink. In order to avoid acquiring possible foodborne illness from eating a peeled food, one should wash such a food in warm soapy water prior to peeling, which will greatly reduce the chances of introducing a foodborne pathogen to the fruit's clean interior.
