Morning Grind

Morning Grind: September 9, 2013

Our daily morning roundup of food-related fare from around the web.

Any customers who weren’t put off by those “fizzy” and”swollen” containers of Chobani yogurt that were officially recalled by the company earlier this week shouldn’t be too worried about getting sick. The culprit mold, a.k.a. Mucor circinelloides, “should not pose a health risk to most consumers…”

Yeah, I still wouldn’t eat fizzy or swollen processed yogurt.






So I started researching [other diets] and thought, ‘These do not sound healthy.’ “

Healthful they may not be. But visually stirring? Absolutely. Looking at what such diets require you to subsist on — lemon juice, maple syrup and cayenne for the Master Cleanse, for example— helps crystallize just how absurd (for most people) they are.

Photos of fad diets highlight how ridiculous they are.
