  • Who doesn’t love Animaniacs?! They’re zany to the max – and have baloney in their slacks. Here they teach us about “modern food technology”, and it rhymes! [The Jew and the Carrot]
  • BPA-Free Cans Hard for Foodmakers to Find [Slashfood]
  • What does the best before/sell-by date really tell you about your food? [NPR]

Enjoy.
