Jon Stewart and The Daily Show gave us a nice wrapup of recent food stories that make you question why you are eating anything you don't make with your own two hands.
Stewart joked about having a mid-show snack. His first try was Subway sandwiches.
Then he "finds out" that Subway had azodicarbonamide in its bread. The funny visual is having azodicarbonamide spread in huge letters across the entire screen via the Al-Jazeera feed.
While the company says the chemical makes bread look white and fluffier, but azodicarbonamide is found in yoga mats and the soles of shoes.
His second snack choice is Kraft Singles. Kraft just announced that sorbic acid in the full-fat American and White American varieties only will be replaced by natamycin, which Kraft says is a "natural mold inhibitor."
Stewart jokes that since Kraft Singles are American, they don't need a mold inhibitor since they never go bad.
The third and final snack option is Hot Pockets, Philly Cheese Steak version. But that version was part of the 8.7 million lbs. of beef recall from Ranchero.
"I had no idea they put actual beef in these," said Stewart.
The meat comes from "diseased and unsound animals."
