I am well aware of China's own problems.

However , it's thanks to China this incidet is being highlighted.

Its not as if the corporations that are behaving in this way are going to come out and educate us on all the harmful materials they are pumping into are food.

It seems a silly attitude to ignore information because you don't like who is telling you.

UK cancer scare puts Shanghai on alert


www.shanghaidaily.com

Heinz and Nestle were found to have raised levels of acrylamide, a chemical identified as a possible carcinogen.

The UK agency said its findings didn't indicate an immediate risk to public health

However, it also warned that long-term consumption could increase the risk of cancer

These regulatory agencies have been corrupted by big business who have infiltrated them their stooges called "consultants" who are basically Rent-A-Whore posing as "experts".

the uk agency is not going to do anything and the lick spittle leader probably had dinner with the head honchos of both companies who assured him everything was ok.

Get your own house in order before you start having a go at our food...if you don't want it,you don't have to buy it-stick to all your nice safe chinese crap instead...


WTF?! are you saying, you happy they are putting cancer causing chemicals in our food?

If so you need your head examined


I shall be contacting heinz and advising them I shall be doing youtube videos about this and passing the links about.

Good for you,I hope they listen.

You know for a fact that they are "putting in" acrylamide as an extra ingredient do you?

Are you sure its not just as a result of the products having been cooked or fried-the usual way acrylamide forms in certain foods?

Well, Heinz is an American company with its headquarters in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Nestle are a multinational with headquarters in Switzerland, so is this a worldwide issue or just products they are marketing in the UK? Sorry, but I can't get the link to load so can't read the article. BTW, re the melamine scandal in China - Nestle were involved in that...




In late September 2008, the Hong Kong government found melamine in a Chinese-made Nestlé milk product. The Dairy Farm milk was made by Nestlé's division in the Chinese coastal city Qingdao.[25] Nestlé affirmed that all its products were safe and were not made from milk adulterated with melamine. On 2 October 2008, the Taiwan Health ministry announced that six types of milk powders produced in China by Nestlé contained low-level traces of melamine, and were "removed from the shelves". [26]

It wouldn't be quite so dramatic and interesting if people realised these chemicals occur naturally as part of the cooking process and they themselves can induce the same through their own food prep at home.....

It's like that whole Coke thing in the US. Totally overblown as you'd need to drink 2,000 cans of coke in a day to get the dose of the chemical they gave to the mice and the chemical was formed as a natural byproduct of heating caramel.

EDIT: Also, are these food stuffs made in the UK (or elsewhere) and imported to China, or are these made locally?

You are using the exact defense these corporations would be using.

This was discovered in a small number of foods by accident when they are cooked/heated. It is mostly chips/fries and bread being toasted.

Its very different with the Nestle and Heinz porducts. The products are showing HIGHER levels of Acrylamide.
nestle "has been working to find out the forming mechanism of acrylamide and is seeking new manufacturing processes to lower its level"

THe UK Food Sandards Agency said it "had been putting pressure on food companies to reduce acrylamide levels. "

The FACT is that they will not cause an immediate risk, they may cause cancer over a longer time period. This is exactly what ciggerettes do.

This information has come to light because folks in China can order products online from the UK. The product is then tested when brought into the country and these products are testing high for Acrylamide.

People are not informed and educated about these abuses by corporations. If you educate the people and inform that the products are tainted they will stop using them.

nestle, Heinz, Kraft and all the other large scale producers of processed food should simply be avoided at all costs, I personally don't care if they put rat poison into their food as I will never buy food from a large scale processed food producer
