So of the burgers they tested, one was spit on and 3 were either stored somewhere there are rats or made partially or wholly with rat meat.

Outrageous, a black bean burger with no black beans.

Here are more of the findings:

6% of meat burgers were identified as problematic with substitution, hygienic issues, and pathogenic contamination


1 sample tested positive for human DNA


3 samples tested positive for rat DNA


46% of samples contained more calories than reported on labels or in menus


49% of samples contained more carbohydrates than reported


In one black bean burger, there were no black beans


In 2 cases, meat was found in vegetarian products
The lab results come from 258 samples of ground meat, frozen patties, fast-food burger products and veggie burger products from 79 brands and 22 retailers.


pshaw, "pathogenic contamination" only means that those burgers boost your immune system.


What's more interesting was that the sample containing human dna was veggie burger!

How can you not be okay with it? Rats could fuel the entire leather industry, as well as feed North Korea for a thousand years.

We eat several spiders during our sleep, per year, as well.

Sadly, not all processed foods are monitored, nor can they be, 100% of the time.

The FDA sets federal limits on the amount of rat/mice feces that can be found in cereals. It's so common for mice to get into grain silos that banning the feces it is unreasonable.

*Shrug* No idea. They are both just animals to me. Of course, I feel like the fear with rats is that they eat food that is left out (or just chew through packaging, because they DGAF). SO, though both can technically carry the bubonic plague, the danger is larger with rats.

But, hey, they world could use a little "Black Death" these days, if you ask me.


Not the plague, but I wonder what kinds of communicable diseases squirrels carry

Then again, if everything's thoroughly cooked...

I'm seriously more troubled by the black bean burger that has no black beans than by a little bit of rat dna.


As long as it's not made of shredded newspaper it's probably okay

I remember one night I literally HEARD a big fat spider land on the pillow next to my head with a loud *PLOP*.

It was probably crawling on the ceiling when it slipped

Well unless it was aiming for my mouth
