safe for consumption?? Image by author

About a month ago, one our relatives brought some apples and oranges. Few of those were left out, and remained unattended on a corner of the dining place. We were about to throw those away, thought that by this time those fruits should be rotten. Surprisingly! noticed…. those looked so fresh..

Even one month after…look of those orange and apple was same as was at the time those were purchased..

Do they need any laboratory test to certify them safe for consumption?

Is there anybody to look after that we, the people consume safe food?

Should we continue having the expensive fruits those are not safe at all??
