11. Bug Poison in Condiments
Love those fast food condiments? What about glazes for fast food salads? Well, in the course of our research through the ingredients on several fast-food chain sites, we found some condiments contain propylene glycol alginate. The additive is commonly used as a food thickener and stabilizer, as well as a killing and preserving agent in insect traps and a lubricant in a bunch of inedible treats, like massage oil. Propylene glycol is safe for human consumption, but illegal to put in cat food. Sounds like cat food has higher standards than might appear.
