Sorry, I didn't realize you were into eating beaver anus.

One day, probably doesn't matter. I'd limit the amount given to kids though, and I don't personally want any.

That article doesn't work on mobile, there's no way to scroll that interactive box. But from the articles title I highly doubt it's something bad that I could never imagine, disappointing.

Imo users should minimally quote from an article to provide the basis for a discussion.

Just be wary of anything you read in the Huffington Post; It is not well known for investigative journalism.

 

They could be correct in this instance, but they were not very specific with the description of the additives.

Personally, I would be more concerned about the sugar. It is in literally everything that isn't picked straight from the garden. I certainly feel no need to consume it in pure form wrapped in chocolate or any other flavouring, whether it comes from beaver bums or not.

At no point is it stated that the product contains the example.

You have taken a poorly written statement, read it poorly, and made connections that don't necessarily exist.

While you're busy learning horrible things about food.

Food safety standards often specify the acceptable levels of cockroach in chocolate.

This is a can of worms in these parts on several levels. For example, I would hate to do a germ swab of the meat shelves in some of the supermarkets I have been in.

 

 

 

Apparently they have yet to discover sealed tray packaging technology, so blood and so on is busy dripping all over those shelves in a food safety disaster - since I doubt they have rigidly enforced, adequately supervised cleaning regimes.

Apparently some of the colourings used in gummy lollies come from a beatle, and is also used to make a type of varnish. So what? Don't the FDA also have acceptable levels for rat feces in peanut butter? Here's the thing: if is scientifically acceptable then smarter people than me have figured out that it won't kill me, so frankly, bring on the beaver anus, rat poop, whatever. There'll never be enough in there to notice while eating it.

Apparently a little sheep faeces in the Havelock North water supply wasn't enough to notice while drinking it. Gee, I wonder why all those people got sick?

Yeah but did they really science that? If they had they probably would have found nastys beyond acceptable levels - or never had them in the first place. Nice try though :p.

Water provision appears to run on the Amateur Hour Principle as far as I can see.
