    For the first time since 2007, the Department of Agriculture included raisins in its most recent tests for pesticide residues on fruits and vegetables, and the results are shocking: Of the 670 conventional raisin samples analyzed, 99 percent tested positive for at least two pesticides. On average, each sample was contaminated with more than 13 pesticides, and one sample had 26 pesticides.

    Yikes! I posted this one to Facebook, directed especially at parents. I have a box of raisins in the house but I don't use them frequently. I won't throw them out but when the box is empty, they're gone for good. Wonder if they'd work in mousetraps… I'm infested with mice this fall!
