I was browsing the food aisles at Cost Plus World Market in Walnut Creek the other day looking for a healthy snack when I encountered something so unbelievable I still can hardly believe it. I can’t say I wasn’t sorely tempted by the chocolate wafer snacks from Europe and Japanese sweets but I was determined and finally found it; a roasted Korean sesame snack called Say! Crunch. I thought it would make for a tasty snack but then I noticed the sign above:
Products containing seaweed contain chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.
I know I’ve seen a similar sign in parking garages million times, but seaweed causing cancer?! Is this really true?!
