I am from Taiwan and recently my parents told me about this latest scandal on tainted drinks. This is huge news in Taiwan but I haven't heard about it here in the states. Apparently, a company have been illegally using DEHP in their products. They have removed nearly half a million bottles of drinks from shelves over fears. Taipei Times reported some 167 food ingredient suppliers face recalls.

This chemical is banned and is used as a toxic industrial plasticizer substitute for the more expensive palm oil.
Stay away from boba drinks for a while! In the asian communities in Los Angeles there is a boba drink shop in every corner. When this news breaks out, I'm not sure what will happen to them, not sure if it's all correlated though. I have been drinking this stuff for years. Great

We been poisoning ourselves for a while here in the US.

Hell, we have things here labeled organic and/or natural that are nothing but.pure evil in a box/bottle.

Not the boba, honeydew boba is the best on a 112+ summer day. It's nice to be able to come here for news that doesn't always make the headlines here. Thanks for the heads up.
