NEW REASON NOT TO EAT CHOCOLATE

The FDA's standard for food defects in chocolate:

Average is 60 or more insect fragments per 100 grams when 6 100-gram subsamples are examined OR Any 1 subsample contains 90 or more insect fragments.

Of course, that would be a treat compared to the standard for red fish:

3 % of the fillets examined contain 1 or more copepods (a parasite) accompanied by pus pockets.

Yummy.
