treatsDETROIT – An investigation is underway after a video surfaced last week showing a man urinating into a Rice Krispies Treats production line.

The Parmesan you’re putting on your pasta could be wood

Posted By Staff

Date: February 17th, 2016

cheeseA new report has found that what you thought was 100 per cent Parmesan cheese may in fact be wood.

Even worse, some brands may not have any cheese in their product at all.

It’s involved in a criminal case against Castle Cheese, which was once a major supplier to the big grocery chains, for selling ‘Parmesan’ products with cut-rate substitutes, such as wood.

The FDA believes other grated Parmesan suppliers have been filling products with too much cellulose – a common anti-clumping agent made from wood pulp.  More

China busts 35 restaurants for seasoning food with opium

Posted By Staff

Date: January 22nd, 2016

opiumChina – Dozens of restaurants in China have been busted for serving noodles, hotpot, grilled fish and fried chicken seasoned with possibly addictive opium poppies.

The China Food and Drug Administration said in a statement this week that a total of 35 restaurants were under investigation and five of those had already been prosecuted.

The regulator said the poppy derivatives it detected included morphine and codeine and called on local authorities to step up their monitoring efforts. The additive has been banned since 2013.

Cooks sprinkling powdered poppy on their dishes isn’t uncommon in China although it’s unclear whether it can make a restaurant’s food genuinely addictive.  More

foodOSNABRUCK, Germany – A German meals-on-wheels charity apologized after three senior citizens were mistakenly served high-end dog food instead of human food.

The Osnabrucker Tafel charity in the town of Osnabruck said three senior citizens were mistakenly given high-end dog food manufactured by Santaniello.

At least one of the seniors ate the food. Another of the seniors told the charity they had started to heat up the dish, but decided not to eat it due to a foul odor.

The charity said workers mistook the Santaniello glass jars for human food due to the high-end labeling, which described the contents as “venison and potatoes with garden vegetables.”  More

Late-night snacks could have a negative impact on your learning and memory

snackCalifornia – The research from the University of California found that eating regular meals at times that are normally for sleeping reduced the cognitive performance of mice, and similar effects could exist in humans.

Dawn Loh, first author of the study said: “We have provided the first evidence that taking regular meals at the wrong time of day has far-reaching effects for learning and memory.”

The team of researchers tested whether mice were able to recognise an object.

Mice who were regularly fed during their sleep-time were significantly less able to remember the object, and their long-term memory was also greatly reduced.  More
