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.
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.
Finland reported that the man immediately contacted McDonald's to complain. The
branch manager apologized, requested the offending burger and its worm returned

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.
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.
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.

separately on ingredient labels. Instead, they will be lumped into a broad
category -- "artificial flavors" -- already found on most packaged
