The Salad Bag Challenge

We conducted a Salad Bag Challenge where in a series of ocular comparison are made between Fresh Field salad bag and brand x salad bag.  

We took out a 3 day old Fresh Field Salad Green Bag and took a bag of Brand X lettuce in bag which was 3 day old by the time the challenge was conducted.  Both sample were taken on a random basis.
