    Unwashed fruits and vegetables can contain potentially deadly bacterias such as Listeria, Salmonella, and E. Coli, organically grown or not. 

    As far as pesticides, the EPA has limits on how much residue can be on food.  They deem current levels of pesticides safe, but it’s probably a good idea to wash fruits and vegetables thoroughly anyways.

    Unwashed vegetables can give rise to diarrhea and dysentry because of the presence of Escherichia coil. Vegetables grown around refuse dumps and wastes from soak away can cause high presence of bacteria and protozoa in the vegetables.
