Yummy Berries

This just in from Greenpeace China,

"Hong Kong- Fruit samples were found for the first time by Greenpeace to contain methamidophos, a banned pesticide of high toxicity, including on popularly consumed strawberry and tangerines. One sample was even found contaminated by 13 types of pesticide. Greenpeace strongly condemns the repeated omission of the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD), and urges the Government to announce a timetable for food safety legislation in order to stop pesticide contaminated fruit and vegetable from coming to Hong Kong."

Crap, I just ate a strawberry the other day... It'll fit nicely in my system with the high levels of toxic carbon related subtances from the air.
