[aroid-l] U.S. gov't vs. konjac, again

  • Subject: [aroid-l] U.S. gov't vs. konjac, again

These are the 3 most important sentences from this article. I guess that in 
this age of homeland security, security starts at home-- with reporting 
konjac to the government! But the idea of half a million dollars of konjac

Dangerous candy to be destroyed, US FDA says
WASHINGTON, Nov 6 (Reuters) - 
The FDA said it had entered into a consent decree with New Choice Food Inc. 
that will lead to the agency-supervised destruction of 13,000 cases of 
mini-cup jelly candies, valued at about $500,000, that contain a thickening 
agent called konjac.
"FDA has repeatedly warned consumers not to eat these candies. This warning 
applies especially to children," FDA Deputy Commissioner Lester Crawford said 
in a statement.
The FDA urged consumers who see mini-cup jelly candies on store shelves to 
contact the agency and provide details about the products and where they are 
offered for sale.
