This photograph depicted a pregnant woman washing a batch of apples prior to peeling, and eating one from the group (see PHIL 7907, 7908). In order to avoid acquiring a possible foodborne illness from eating a peeled food, one should wash such a food in warm water prior to peeling, which will greatly reduce the chances of introducing a foodborne pathogen to the clean interior.
