KellyX: Summary: Almost anything from China!!!!


FTFY.  Seriously, don't ingest* anything from China, ever.  Or anything sold at a dollar store (3:1 it's a counterfeit from China).

*eat, drink, breath (e.g. candles), put in your mouth (e.g. toothpaste), long term skin contact (e.g. laundry detergent)

Yeah the FDA/USDA has kept the american people immune from food-related deaths.

From 2% to 1.49% or whatever?  What a dumb article  ... still doesn't mean congress should sit on it's balls like bunch of asshole morons.

Feces-fed Tilapia, okay then.

Only news in that piece was the Chilean salmon... hadn't heard about that one. Not much left to eat from the sea these days.

/lobster roll, thankfully not on the list yet

Good thing we have a government agency that enforces  truthful labeling regulations and laws....

I love Squidbillies and as a homeschooled kid, the episode with your handle will always be near and dear to my heart. That and it just had a lot of good jokes.

Tilapia mainly eat each other. It helps intensify the bland flavour.

I'll be sure to bag any explosive diarrhea I have and deposit it in the local GOP representative's office.

Somebody should put together a nice buffet for Congress. I'm sure they get hungry with all the food service people out on furlough.

Can't really help you there.  There are laws that everything imported needs to have the country of origin on the label, but there are tons of loopholes.  Such as: the big crate of oranges needs to be labeled, not each individual orange; if 100% of the ingredients in a product come from China, but the product is assembled here, it's considered a US product; people lie; &c.  Also, the lack of simple things, like the definition of honey, really hamper labeling laws.  If there's no definition of what something is, how can a label be inaccurate?

Tons of BS in this area.

/seriously, the FDA cannot legally tell you what honey is

Fun fact - much of the honey on the market has been micro-filtered to remove the pollen. Why? Because that's the only way to actually tell where the honey came from, and there are heavy restrictions on Chinese honey . If you're eating micro-filtered honey, it's because it's from China.

If I ever need an alt login, Dubious Tilapia will be it.

Even funner fact, most of the honey sold in stores is not even real honey.  They're mostly honey flavored corn syrup.

I stopped eating chicken several months ago after getting sick twice, once at a restaurant and once from 'orgainic' chicken. and from reading Mother Jones regarding all the anti-microbial sprays they use on chicken that may or may not work on salmonella and other crap
 
2013-10-10 03:59:07 PM  
So this would be eat as normal for me.  Farm raised seafood is always a no brainer

I'd think since it's an agrcultural product, honey would be something that falls under the USDA.  I'd like to see a big chart of what agencies monitor which part of the food production chain.

Maybe you should follow up with that. NPR has a good article about it. It really is honey.
