How much animal feces do YOU have in your food?

http://vm.cfsan.fda.gov/~dms/dalbook.html

This shows the allowable levels of "defects" in foods from the FDA.

More people die from being stabbed with an ear of corn than by eating a little dirt.
It's an interesting article, but seriously, if it's been that way since the dawn of time, our bodies have adapted to it.
Just try not to think about it when you're eating.

BTW, do any contestants die while filming "Fear Factor"?

Funny.....

Last night I was out garbage pickin....I'm mean running my scrap and recycling business and I happened across a brand new looking gas grill. I opened it and saw a mouse nest (I guess thats why it got the boot). Normally I would just take it to the yard but it was too good to not take it home. Well, once home i discovered a complete family if newborn mice (about the size of a thumb nail) and its mother, desperately clinging to the underside with a baby in its mouth. At first I was just going to leave it on my tree lawn, but I though of you and rolled it back near the garage where I will wait until they are grown.

Anyway, they looked just like that thing in the picture. You would have gotten a kick out of watching me jump 25 feet when I got eye to eye with the Mom. Later, the mom removed the babies I accidently killed with the foil (sword) I also aquired.

Maybe someone will bring a lawsuit for having too few rodent hairs for 100 grams.

Well, OF COURSE there's excrement in the food. How do you think it makes its own gravy?

just to clarify, by "poo" i dont think there is actual feces in our food. what they are talking about is fecal coliform, a bacteria present in feces. we just did a thing in biology before school got ou where we went down to the river and did fecal coliform tests on the public water. The water was way beond acceptable to drink and just under acceptable to come in contact with.

I prefer purchasing my food in one package and my animal feces in a separate package.

Then I can mix to suit my taste.

It varies upon many factors.

First off is the type of animal, as this dictates the instestinal flora of the animal, and thus most prominent nose, mouthfeel, and flavor.

Next off is what they ate...somethings are better left unknown...

FInally is how often they clean their arse....we all know crutons are undesirable sometimes
