do you know what your kids are really eating?

you expect chemicals to be in WHATEVER was made in china. it's a fact. you get what you pay for. almost everything made is china is full of poison. (i don't care what you say, it is)

who would suspect OUR cereals, cereals you think are approved by the fda, are full of MORE than just red dye #3

U.S. regulators lack data on health risks of most chemicals

Washington Post Staff Writer  

This summer, when Kellogg recalled 28 million boxes of Froot Loops, Apple Jacks, Corn Pops and Honey Smacks, the company blamed elevated levels of a chemical in the packaging.
Dozens of consumers reported a strange taste and odor, and some complained of nausea and diarrhea. But Kellogg said a team of experts it hired determined that there was "no harmful material" in the products.
Federal regulators, who are charged with ensuring the safety of food and consumer products, are in the dark about the suspected chemical, 2-methylnaphthalene. The Food and Drug Administration has no scientific data on its impact on human health. The Environmental Protection Agency also lacks basic health and safety data for 2-methylnaphthalene -- even though the EPA has been seeking that information from the chemical industry for 16 years..........

I'm sorry, wasn't Kellogg a kind of insane Malthusian, and weren't Froot Loops originally invented to, shall we say, "thin the herd"? Granted, through diabetes, not direct poisoning, but still...

And doesn't the EPA have an Industrial Espionage wing that can find this stuff out for them? If not, they should. Anyway, I'm not a chemist, but anything with the words "methyl" and "naphtha" are generally npo in my book...if I know they're there.

Also, if you open your box of Froot Loops and they smell like mothballs and you still feel moved to eat them...see paragraph one of previous comment.
