Thank God the Gedolim don't read the New York Times

If our leaders knew about this everyone but the guy who owns Bodek would be in big trouble:
Tomato juice [per FDA regulations] , may average “10 or more fly eggs per 100 grams [the equivalent of a small juice glass] or five or more fly eggs and one or more maggots.” Tomato paste and other pizza sauces are allowed a denser infestation — 30 or more fly eggs per 100 grams or 15 or more fly eggs and one or more maggots per 100 grams.... Giving new meaning to the idea of spicing up one’s food, curry powder is allowed 100 or more bug bits per 25 grams; ground thyme up to 925 insect fragments per 10 grams; ground pepper up to 475 insect parts per 50 grams. One small shaker of cinnamon could have more than 20 rodent hairs before being considered defective.
Coming soon: Bodek everything?

You'll make a voluntary payment to your food server, but not to your blogger? Toss something in the hat, please, and buy my book.
