DailyDirt: Is It Safe To Eat That?

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The global food supply chain is significantly more complicated than it was a few generations ago. Some of it is due to technological progress, but sometimes it's due to greed and/or pollution. Eliminating waste and making food processes as efficient as possible sounds like a admirable goal, but the food products created at the end of the day should be appetizing... and, more importantly, safe to eat. If you're not too squeamish, check out these links on food that might churn your stomach. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!)

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    "...isolated some Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium samples from the fecal matter, and then they made some yummy (and healthier!?) sausages with the microbes."

    Next step is sausage flavor yogurt.
