Worms found in chicken, KFC Kerala outlet sealed
The Thiruvananthapuram outlet of Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) was temporarily shut down on Monday after live worms were found in the chicken served to a customer. Shiju Abdul Basheer had ordered a dish of fiery chicken. But when his wife cut a piece to feed her little daughter, she found worms wiggling in it.
The restaurant staff apologized and offered to replace the dish. “When I refused, they tried to take it away forcibly. Then, the other customers intervened and alerted the police and the food safety officials,” said Basheer.
Basheer and his brother, who had some of the chicken earlier, showed symptoms of food poisoning when they reached home. They had to be hospitalized.
The authorities raided the outlet and seized bags of chicken that were four to five months old. “We have sent 13 samples for examination. The outlet can’t open till the reports come,” said an official of the food safety department. The incident comes in the wake of a clampdown on unhygienic food joints, which occurred after a man died two months ago after consuming sheverma (an Arab dish) in Thiruvananthapuram.
On Monday night, the KFC outlets in Kozhikode and Kochi were raided. “It is impossible for worms to stay alive in chicken pieces fried at 260 degrees Celsius. We don’t know how it happened,” said M Najeeb, manager of the Kozhikode outlet.
No one from the KFC franchise in Thiruvananthapuram was available for comment. But on Tuesday, a press release by them said, “We are providing full cooperation to the ongoing probe. We are committed to serving quality products to all our customers.”

Worm found in McDonald's burger
An international branch of McDonald's in Finland served up more than one customer wanted in his burger. The customer discovered a live black worm lurking in his burger slathered sauce.
Vuotias Helsinkiläismies, 22, treated himself to a take-out two euro burger from McDonald's. When he arrived home and unwrapped his hamburger he made a disgusting discovery as the worm crawled out of his food.
Voice Finland reported that the man immediately contacted McDonald's to complain. The branch manager apologized, requested the offending burger and its worm returned to the restaurant, and offered him a credit for the McDonald's meal of his choice. However, Helsinkiläismies decided it was not worth spending 2.7 euros on the bus-fare to return for another burger.
Instead he has sealed the worm inside the burger and popped it inside his fridge until he has the opportunity to return the tainted food to McDonald's. Helsinkiläismies considers it lucky that he spotted the worm before eating it and now hopes the restaurant will focus more on quality control.
MSNBC sent a Dateline team to check if "America’s top 10 fast food chains are clean and safe." Amongst their rather unpleasant discoveries they found a worm in a Wendy's salad, making Wendy's a choice to avoid if the Finnish man decides to take a State side trip.

WHAT PEPSI AND OTHERS DOING TO ENHANCE TASTE
What You Don't Know About Flavor Enhancers Can Harm You
The receptors are made from HEK293 -- HEK stands for Human Embryonic Kidney cells, with 293 denoting that the HEK was from the 293rd experiment. HEK293 originally came from a healthy, electively aborted baby whose cells were then harvested and cloned.
"Senomyx's salt taste, savory flavor, and sweet flavors -- as well as all their other flavor enhancers -- are purposefully developed so that they stimulate your taste buds without them actually tasting anything ... Much like MSG, these flavor enhancers operate on the neurological level to produce these reactions ...
Since they are not actually ingredients but rather 'enhancers' they are not required to be listed in a package's ingredients except as 'artificial flavors' ... [And] because very small amounts of the additives are used ... Senomyx's chemicals have not undergone the FDA's usual safety approval process for food additives."
It's no secret that most processed foods contain a variety of "artificial" and "natural" flavors intended to make you crave a certain brand of chips or cookies over another. But what is largely unknown to most consumers is that a new variety of food additive is already on the market and probably in some of your favorite snack foods.
These new additives are unique because they are not flavors at all. They are chemicals that contain no flavor of their own, rather they activate or block taste receptors in your mouth. The chemicals can mimic or enhance the taste of sugar, salt and monosodium glutamate (MSG), for example.
Amazingly, these flavor-altering compounds are used in small amounts (less than one part per million), which means companies like Senomyx do not have to go through the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) approval process typically necessary to release food additives. Instead of the lengthy FDA process, the compound only has to be classified as "generally recognized as safe" (GRAS) by the Flavor and Extract Manufacturers Association -- a process that can take as little as 18 months, with a mere 3 months of safety testing on rats.
"Unlike artificial sweeteners, Senomyx's chemical compounds will not be listed separately on ingredient labels. Instead, they will be lumped into a broad category -- "artificial flavors" -- already found on most packaged food labels."

Cancer a Man Made Disease
Cancer is a disease of modern time which is causing havoc and no one is spared from it. Even the 4 heads of states of Latin American Countries are facing it at the same time. One of the leader and President of Venezuela Hugo Chavez said it is planted by American.
Apart from these discussion cancer is one of the most deadly disease, it can wait for some time, you live 5, 10 up to 20 years but death is sure once it caught. The research and experiments shows it is purely a man-made disease. It is purely depends upon life style and eating habits of the people and there is only one way to stay fit and i.e. change your life style.
Tobacco is one of the most important causes of Cancer and everybody knows about it and governments are trying to control it by different means, most importantly putting warning on every pocket that it will cause cancer. Making laws not to smoke in public and prohibiting its sale to under-age. Nothing is working, is an issue. The sale and consumption of tobacco related products are increasing day by day and cost of tobacco related diseases on health care is increasing day by day.
Bhutan is the first country in the world to ban all types of tobacco sale, soon late us hope every country make same law.
I am talking about the known things and people those products of which peoples are aware of. I am talking of those of which most of the people do not know and consumes. Government and policy makers do not want to talk about.
Should the Cancer Warning be made on every product which contents the chemicals causing the cancer?
The real issue is unsuspecting people eating cancer causing products. Junk food contains additives and artificial flavors which increases toxic load and can cause cancer. Cancer is basically caused by the life style and continuous exposure to chemical causing cancer including which are present in food.
Pepsi and other Producers are using artificial chemicals and flavors which can cause cancer. Even though it is mandatory to put label they are avoiding it by using different gimmicks.
Mountain Dew Can Dissolve Rat
In one of the interesting case which is prejudice in USA, a consumer which complaint that; he has found a rat in his Mountain Dew Can. The lawyers of the company are arguing that, it cannot contain a full rat because; it has chemicals which can dissolve rat. There is no issue a rat can come all the way into can.
This is very strong chemical which consumers are drinking without knowing what they are drinking and this can cause them many diseases.
Food Additives Increase Your Toxic Load
Cancer is, by and large, a man-made disease caused by a highly unnatural lifestyle and continuous exposures to excess chemicals, including chemicals in your food.
Pepsi's lawyers say Mountain Dew can dissolve a mouse
NaturalNews) While drinking Mountain Dew, have you ever seen (or perhaps felt on your tongue) a thick, jelly-like substance? Maybe you assumed the ingredients in the soda had gelled. According to Mountain Dew manufacturer Pepsi, you may have been ingesting some extra protein with your beverage in the form of a liquified rodent.
Quench your thirst with some chemicals
NaturalNews has reported many times in the past on the health dangers of soda, including the fact that Mountain Dew and other fruit-flavored beverages contain a flame retardant chemical (http://www.naturalnews.com/034448_brominated_vegetable_oil_soft_drinks_chemical.html). The bright green color of this soda obviously derives from food colorings, many of which also have negative health consequences.
Coca-Cola, Pepsi to reduce 'cancer-causing' caramel coloring content of their soft drinks
Coke and Pepsi change recipe to avoid cancer warning
Coke and Pepsi change the way they make their drinks to avoid a cancer warning label in compliance with Californian law
Pepsi and Coke may cause Cancer?
One has to wonder if this warning would drastically affect the sales of these beverages. Don’t cigarette packages have dire warnings with disturbing graphics printed on their labels? Have not other food products also been linked to cancer, such as aspartame and other synthetic sweeteners and food additive products. So what is it and is there a real concern over 4-MEI?
