Nobody ever talks about how Kool-Aid contains the liquified organs of the Kool-Aid Man. You'd think there'd be more outrage and disgust.

Ehh, if you make it, the grit falls to the bottom of the container. It's the last cup that becomes a risk. Not as bad as having contaminated Jell-O shots.

Of course it does. Everything contains harmful substances. Everything is also radioactive.

I've worked in food manufacturing for the last few years.
Recalls are bad news, pretty much start at around 10 million and go up in cost.

So the way kids always leave the last quarter inch in the pitcher might actually be survival instinct?

If you use warm water and fully mix it with a mixing spoon, this won't happen. Everything mixes together. Put it in the fridge and wait for it to cool.

It's almost like warm water speeds up the rate of dissolution or something.

I wonder HOW the fark they allow anything on their production line that could fragment and get into
the product?? A company as large as Kraft should be able to dictate that every step of their process
MUST use non toxic, non fragment packaging (like cardboard, or waxed paper or whatever..) and
the whole production line that has any plastic parts, they MUST be non-fragmenting plastic..
How the hell  they even got anything glass into the production area for a powdered product is a total mystery..
That should be utterly verboten..

I was wondering if General Foods or Kraft or whoever owned it at the time ever tried to sue of the genericizing of their brand name, but I can't find anything.

Maybe the publicity wasn't so bad since everyone realized the cyanide was an after-market additive and the stuff in the stores didn't contain it. At least those of us who knew the truth avoided the Flavor Aid for a while.

Also, Kool-Aid is just dehydrated "Fruit Smack", whatever that was. Raspberry is my favorite flavor though.

You're right mostly.

I've made tea and granola. Well I fix the machines that make them.
With granola we run everything through a metal detector after baking and then once more after blending and packaging.  The metal detectors are high speed and divert any product that is tainted.  You end up with a lot of metal in the production process actually. Bearings or other bits wearing out on the oven, contamination from prior processing like whoever we buy the oats, rice, dried berries from.  Hell we see a lot of birdshot in the raisins.
The metal detectors often have to be reset when we moved to a lighter or denser recipe but we test it every 15 or 20 minutes.

Plastic, glass, and other contaminants are a lot harder to find. Most plants won't let you bring them out onto the floor.

I make tea now, we use magnets for metal even though not all metal is magnetic and that's about it for contamination detection once the dry goods have made it past blending.

That said I'd drink this tea any time. I see how much we freak out about ingredient quality and purity.
Never buy Post granola, 8th street granola, or cliff bars of any god damn kind.  Especially the cliff bars.
