The FDA agrees that it’s reasonable to accept more natural defects in our food in lieu of increasing the amount of pesticides sprayed on them:

"The alternative to establishing natural defect levels in some foods would be to insist on increased utilization of chemical substances to control insects, rodents and other natural contaminants. The alternative is not satisfactory because of the very real danger of exposing consumers to potential hazards from residues of these chemicals, as opposed to the aesthetically unpleasant but harmless natural and unavoidable defects."

However, there may be one health area that’s been overlooked. According to Judy Tidwell, an economic service specialist at a state social services office in the Southeast United States who has struggled with allergies, trace amounts of insect parts that have been ground into food items ranging from strawberry jam to spaghetti sauce can affect people with allergies and asthma.

"We throw away the products that we see are infested. Just think how many we consume because we didn’t notice they were infested. Ingesting insect material may cause stomach disorders, as well as allergic reactions," she says.

  1. I’m vomiting every time I read about something in this list. Worst part is that I just keep reading.

  2. I had read something about this, I also found something regarding home gardens and how home owners could be fined up to a million dollars if their garden food is defective. The rules and numbers for people with a home garden is much much more restrictive than it is for larger food corporations.

    This story is simply disgusting!
    Thanks for making me lose my supper!
