OJ in Trouble

No, no - not the murdering one. Looks like Tropicana is getting sued for adding "aromas and flavors" to their "100% pure and natural" orange juice. Basically, they probably boiled the crap out of those oranges and add chemicals to make them taste like oranges again.

Funny, since late last year, 60 minutes aired a good segment about the "flavorists" that talked about how these companies put chemicals in just about every single packaged product.

Next time you open up a package of chips or drink a tasty beverage - check out the packaging. Natural flavors - that should be OK right?

"Natural flavors come from nature, but not necessarily from what the label implies. For example, strawberry and vanilla flavor can come from the gland in a beaver's backside."
