So That’s What’s On The Bottom Of My Rice Cooker

Forget about China’s contaminated milk, it now seems their friggin rice is full of harmful heavy metals. Yay industrialization! It is feared over 10% of all rice grown in China contains nasty metals like cadmium, arsenic and mercury. The reason rice is so susceptible is that polluted irrigation water from nearby mines absorbs is easily into the plant. Ah never mind, they’ll probably export it all anyways!

Psst Shame it doesn’t include lead I think I need a few fillings!

Would You Like Cadmium With That?

Hey psst Loons, if you happened to have got yourself a McDonald’s Shrek drinking glass, you might want to throw it away. Not that any of you would, but just in case! Evidently 13.4 million of them have been recalled due to the toxic metal cadmium found in the paint design. You know, the crap that shrivels your kidneys and makes your bones soften. No not the food silly, the friggin paint, stay with me here. Anywho, got one, get rid of it!

Psst Loons of Australia, Asia  and Europe you can ignore this public service announcement, it’s only the US and Canada who have fallen foul of the tainted paint.

You Better Watch Out

Note the gloves!!!!!

Just a little public service announcement, can the parents of children who bought “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” charm bracelets in dollar stores between 2006 and March 2009 please carefully remove them off the wrists of your precious little snowflakes with gloves and dispose of them in the nearest landfill. Thank you. No need to panic but it seems the Chinese jewelry contains high levels of the toxic metal cadmium which can cause kidney and bone damage. OK by high levels I mean the charm contains 91% cadmium.
