(NECN) - Massachusetts introduced a new label yesterday for foods harvested, produced and processed in the state. It's called the "Seal of Commonwealth Quality."

The Environmental Working Group took testing information from the federal government earlier this year and came up with a list called, "The Dirty Dozen," which are foods they recommend to buy organic:

Fruits: apples, cherries, grapes, nectarines, peaches, pears, raspberries, strawberries.

Vegetables: bell peppers, celery, potatoes, spinach.

Registered dietitian Debra Wein talks to NECN about advising consumers to eat locally, when they should splurge on organic produce, and the benefits of drinking pomegranate juice.
