The U. S. Department of Health publishes a booklet entitled "The Food Defect Action Levels" and lists specifications of "current levels for natural or unavoidable defects in food" for chocolate in the form of "insect, rodent, and other natural contaminants" allowed by the FDA. Tolerance levels for chocolate and chocolate liquor used in the manufacture of such products as Hershey's chocolate, are up to 120 insect fragments per cup (8 oz) or 2 rodent hairs per cup. That means the Hershey's chocolate bar you eat may contain one rodent hair and 16 insect parts, and yet carry the FDA's blessing.

I would bet that Hershey's standards are higher than the FDA's standards.

They actually are. And natural, organic chocolate has a higher percentage of insect parts than heavily processed chocolate.

Also, insects aren't really bad for you. They have a very high amount of low fat protein. The chocolate is cooked so contamination is removed. So you ate a mouse hair or a some spider legs - BFD.

I ate some grasshoppers at Tamayo on Larimer Square a few months back.

If you eat red-colored yogurt you've been eating completely harmless beetle torsos for some time.

No, I get this and I agree with you. But hershey's has long tried to fudge with the basic ingredients of chocolate for cost control. They were part of the lobby from a couple of years ago that were trying to get the FDA to change regulations on the definition of chocolate so that they could use vegetable oil instead of cocoa butter (you know, just one of the defining ingredients) I don't care about the .5% variance of insect parts ground into the product, as you noted that process sanitizes it. I do care about the cheap and crappy quality of the ingredients they use in their process.

Well you'll get no argument from me there. It has the consistency of wax and not very good flavor.

Just randomly hearing "Sears" makes me think of the Toughskins jeans I had to wear as a kid. I'm pretty sure they're still around. Intact. With a smiley face iron-on patch on the back pocket.

I once was on a date with a girl from Cameron, they apparently eat insects there the same way we eat chips and crackers here.
