The modern food industry has developed a lot of techniques to help distribute food efficiently and safely, but sometimes there are a few “bad apples” out there that make it look like the entire food industry is filled with unsavory practices. Here are just a few examples of some food issues that might have hit your plate.
- There’s possibly some “honey laundering” going on in the US — where tainted honey from China is smuggled into the US market without proper country of origin labels. The yuck factor of this story almost triggers an urban legend skepticism… [url]
- Those organic strawberries from California might not be as organic as you think. Apparently, just about all strawberry plants come from plant nurseries that are not “organic” because they use pesticides. [url]
- Watching fish that were over-soaked in sodium tripolyphosphate (STPP) as they cook is not very appetizing. Don’t watch this video if you like seafood. [url]
