    Yoplait strawberry yogurt, Tropicana grapefruit, orange-strawberry juice, or Hershey'

    yuck!!!!!!

    http://images.businessweek.com/ss/06...d/source/4.htm

    If you like Yoplait strawberry yogurt, Tropicana grapefruit, orange-strawberry juice, or Hershey's Good & Plenty candies, chances are you will be sucking on the red coloring extracted from the female cochineal beetle and her eggs. These insects live on cactus plants in Peru and the Canary Islands.

    According to the best-selling book by Eric Schlosser, Chew on This, the female bug feeds on cactus pads, and color from the cactus gathers in her body. The bugs are collected, dried, and ground into a coloring additive. It takes 70,000 of the insects to make a pound of carmine dye, as it is known. The Food & Drug Administration doesn't require that this cochineal be identified in the ingredients. Manufacturers simply identify it as an "artificial color."

    I actually saw this on unwrapped a few years ago. It doesnt really bother me seeing as though everytime I go outside I end up eating a few bugs anyways LOL.

    If you ever saw what a pig ate you would never eat a pork chop again; or any pork for that matter

    Re: If you like Yoplait strawberry yogurt, you won't after you read this...

    Don't ya know that the people adding the dead bug powder to the product is sitting there snickering. Well at least that's how I picture it...some person that's mad at the world has that job and feels like he is getting back at everyone when he adds bugs to our food.

    I've been told that the reason they bleach out flour is because there is no way you can get all the bugs out of the grains, so they just grind them up too and bleach the flour so you don't see black specks in it. I figure that's why flour and meal get bugs in it so easy...the eggs are probably already there.

    And someone I know worked in a tomato factory once and they won't touch ketchup. They said everything gross goes into it. Bugs, worms, and rotten tomatoes.
