High-Fructose Corn Syrup Contains Mercury.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/01/26/AR2009012601831.html

This stuff scares me. It's like there is nothing out there that's safe to eat anymore.

I hate the FDA and the lobbyists that push this stuff as safe. I'm glad we're a HFCS free house and will continue to be.

Nothing prepackaged is "safe" or healthy. As my dr says, if you can't catch it or pick it, don't eat it.

Wow. Knew it wasn't good for you but never imagined mercury. Also about the dressings. I'm not used to checking those labels but will from now on.
