I would just put it in the sun, since light kills viruses. It also would evaporate any chlorine that's possibly sprayed in the air in that store or in packaging. It's also why I'm taking vitamin C, the sugar chewable ones, since they neutralise chlorine internally, and also sugar in the vitamin C tablet is a stabilising force that slows down the vitamin C a bit unlike powdered C.
What is your goal by "sanitising" no amount of rinsing in water will wash all bacteria or viruses off it that is the goal. you can only wash off dirt which may also remove the majority of the nasties. you will need to use a sanitising agent (I believe sanidate is one used) if you wish to kill anything that may be on the produce.

I've never heard of anybody getting salmonella from eating plants, but bagged lettuce. However, they usually issue recalls when that happens.
I don’t know that it is possible to *sanitize* produce. But I suppose one could minimize contamination by thoroughly washing off the produce. I don’t know how well sunlight would break down viruses. Maybe if every possible surface was exposed thoroughly to sunlight, but it is something like broccoli, then there are always surfaces that will be shaded.
