The FDA's "Food Defect Action Levels" booklet makes for somewhat unappetizing reading. Is it really comforting to know that chocolate (to take but one example) only fails the test if it contains 60 or more insect fragments per 100 grams? Or that ginger is FDA-acceptable unless it contains an average of more than 3 mg of mammalian excreta per pound?
