Did You Know....

I learned in Nutrition yesterday that the government allows a certain % of foreign bodies in canned or packaged food. My professor is a food scientist and used to work for Campbell's and she said that there were snakes in the tomatoes; people wouldn't pull out the snakes off the assembly line before the tomatoes were to be processed so the snakes would be boiled in with the tomatoes. Also rat hair and feces were found but they let it go because the final product would test less than 5%.

She then tried to make us feel better by saying, "Don't worry, cooked feces won't kill you."

I don't think very many of us were going to rush out and buy canned food after class.
