Don’t ask don’t tell

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — If you faithfully read food labels you’ve probably come across ingredients you can’t pronounce, let alone describe.

CBS2’s Crystal Cruz reports that many of your favorite snacks contain such bizarre things as bug parts and there are other odd additives lurking in your food.

Instant noodles, soft drinks, frozen entrees — they’re fast, cheap and easy.

Just know that many of your favorite foods are filled with items you would never suspect. And most likely things you wouldn’t knowingly put in your mouth.

    were just talking about this, because you get a bunch of farmers together, you get discussions about mouse shit and baby rabbits in combines, so it’s not just a conspiracy to defraud you, nature of the beast is that you are going to consume shit you don’t want to, no matter what, because someone else is producing your food.

    what you don’t know won’t hurt you.

    It’s also why we have a HUGE surplus of food.

    Line from a movie: What’s that? It’s called loaf. What’s in it? Sketty, bugs, rat shit, mystery meat.

    I reject any white spots from my bran flakes. I don’t *know* but I suspect it’s bird crap.

    This is one of the main reasons why the market for kosher foods includes so many Gentile customers. While the items aren’t necessarily any healthier, that little symbol generally means that each ingredient has been individually checked prior to production. As a result, there are far fewer insects in kosher foods. Fruits and vegetables are washed more thoroughly. Even the equipment is cleaned more thoroughly.

    Jews are less than 2% of the US population, and the vast majority of American Jews don’t keep kosher, but that tiny population of kosher households have helped to make the food supply safer and cleaner for everyone. Manufacturers are constantly recalling food. What no one seems to notice is that recalls of kosher food are relatively rare, and those that do occur are often for reasons other than safety.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
