How about some 2-methylnaphthalene with your froot loops?.....Recall of 28 million boxes of cereal, too much loop in the froot

I think I really am living in a twilight zone. Federal regulators once again are asleep at the wheel when it comes to consumer food safety but can we expect anything different? The only thing that regulators seem to regulate is the size of their wallet nowadays. At least that is how it appears to me.

Just this summer they had to recall 28 million boxes of Kellogs cereal over consumers complaining of a foul odor and taste and some were complaining of becoming physically ill after eating the cereal, like a form of food poisoning. To make it worse, the fed came out at first to state that there wasn't any harmful material found in their products but of course, that was not the case.

Here is a snippet from the article out of the Washington Post: "Federal regulators, who are charged with ensuring the safety of food and consumer products, are in the dark about the suspected chemical, 2-methylnaphthalene. The Food and Drug Administration has no scientific data on its impact on human health. The Environmental Protection Agency also lacks basic health and safety data for 2-methylnaphthalene — even though the EPA has been seeking that information from the chemical industry for 16 years."

Here's another interesting piece of info you might find interesting from the article: "What's in the foil? A natural component of crude oil, 2-methylnaphthalene is structurally related to naphthalene, an ingredient in mothballs and toilet-deodorant blocks that is considered a possible human carcinogen by the EPA." Doesn't that sound appetizing....yummie?

The FDA is a joke, obsolete really! Well, they have no scientific data on a chemical they seem to so readily use. Just say no to the loop of fruit doom. If the FDA says its safe to eat, DO NOT EAT IT!
