It’s in pretty much everything that uses grown crops, it’s a chemical that’s hard to avoid.

No mate. It kills stuff dead. Weeds, plants, trees. Everything
Yes. That’s why it ends up in our food because it kills weeds and not modified crops. So it ends up on the food that ends up on the shelves. It’s not that hard to grasp is it?

If you read the article it tells you, I will save you the trouble.

“The herbicide is commonly used on crops such as wheat, barley, oats and peanuts, making it likely that it came from B&J’s cookie dough, peanut butter or other added ingredients.“

No course not, but it should come as no surprise really. I don’t eat Ben and Jerry’s Ice cream but I no doubt eat my fair share of Glyphosate like the rest of the country. I think it should be banned but it’ll not happen in the UK.

As a matter of interest, how thoroughly do you rinse cutlery/crockery/glasses when hand washing?

I always knew soggy biscuit ice cream was wrong.

Unfortunately this stuff is everywhere. When I worked in Burger King my manager told me to wash my hands properly after degreasing the metal parts and plastic trays for burger patties- it was apparently carcinogenic. We only rinsed the trays with water after degreasing. I thought I would avoid takeaways but it must be the same in normal restaurants too. Best thing to do is not to think about it too much.
B&J said they would remove this stuff later, so I hope they do it as soon as possible.
