It does help you lose weight, so it's not all bad.

True...blood is where most of your water weight comes from.

Nice. That show was so good...in the beginning.

Who the hell has a right to tell me how much glass I can have in my frozen diners? A company voluntarily recalling dangerous food items and providing coupons for replacement items sounds a hell of a lot like fascism to me.

Wasn't this an old Saturday Night Live sketch with Dan Ackroyd?

Mmm, glass shards.   The best part of a Lean Cuisine meal.

The ice dispenser machine at my college would sometimes provide complimentary shards of metal.

So just put a sticker overlay on the ingredients, to include that. I see that all the time with the UK treats I love.

/the sticker, not the glass
//to my knowledge
///internal gashies!

So, what are the acceptable limits of broken glass in a meal?

How many Weight Watchers points does the glass add?

They should just repackage as Light Bulb Sandwich, avoid lawsuits.

They were probably the best tasting part of the meal.

At least it wasn't donkey meat?

Sorry buddy, elections have consequences, and you were outvoted.  The meals were recalled after a third customer complained.  You get three of your friends to ask for extra crunch and maybe they'll but the glass back in.

wow. GRASy.

Irwin Mainway sells food-grade broken glass. Otherwise, people would just go out and eat whatever broken glass they find in the gutter...

"fragments of broken glass" wasn't listed as an ingredient

Aka "misbranded" in the letters from FDA lawyers.

I thought the crushed-glass Lean Cuisine was only for trick-or-treaters.  Along with the straight pins and razor blades.

See?! You shouldn't have complained about horse meat in your frozen food, the alternative is much worse!

common sense is an oxymoron: Irwin Mainway sells food-grade broken glass. Otherwise, people would just go out and eat whatever broken glass they find in the gutter...


There actually is food-grade ground glass.

[Silica] produces a white powder that is insoluble in water, and is used as an anti-caking agent, anti-foaming agent, as well as a filtering agent to remove protein and yeast in beer.

As long as they don't come after my Ram's Bladder Cups. I need me some lark's vomit.

Naturally, out of the 1,013,077 varieties of Lean Cuisine now available, THIS was what I ate for dinner last night.

I am walking gingerly.
