When you buy grouped produce, such as beets or greens, or something like a celery stalk, there is usually a tag or rubber band around them, to keep them together. If you store them in the fridge like that, the tag will choke off the area it is on, rotting the produce under it, which may extend further on either side.

The first thing you should do is remove the tags, and keep the produce in the bag it came it, or store it another way. Your produce will still keep, but much better that the squished portion the tag is wrapped around. Some tags may be of a material that isn't good for the produce, or you, as well.
