Brigette, you may already know this, but in case:

Before selling any produce as washed, triple washed, etc.: check your  
state regulations. You may need a processing license, complete with  
inspections and certain types of equipment.

If all you're claiming to do is to have rinsed the produce to get the  
worst of the dirt off, and you're telling the customers that they  
should wash it themselves, this probably puts you in a different  
category as far as food safety regulations are concerned (though there  
may be other factors affecting this.)
