Are you eating bugs?

 

Last night my boyfriend and I were talking about a post that he read in the Huffington Post about  how we may have bugs already in our food. The conversation initially came about a month ago when we were going to have grits for breakfast when he notice that there were little bugs in our grits and he was wondering how did they get in there? I said maybe they were packed in with the grits.

According to the Huffington Post :Simply put, there has to be a certain amount of bugs or bug parts in your food before it's deemed unsafe, but a little bit is totally fine. For example, manufacturers can't allow more than 225 bug parts in 225 grams of pasta. Any less than 225 parts in that batch is ok for the FDA.

I don't know about you but that makes my skin crawl, to know that I am eating bugs in my food. On the other hand Pesticide's are a lot more harmful then eating bugs. I guess this is something that we are force to live with.
