if you are hungry and in Canada...........

SUBJECT: BORAX (BORIC ACID) SOLD OR REPRESENTED AS FOOD

Sir / Madam,

It has been brought to the attention of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) that Borax is occasionally represented and sold as a food in Canada. Borax, also known as Boric Acid, has a history in some cultures of being added to foods as a firming agent, meat rub, preservative, or tenderizer.



So , if I use if for fighting mold I can eat/drink the leftover?

Rob ... Tim's is American owned now buddy.


Hear about the "virus" some companies are going to be adding to sandwich meats? Apparently to counter-act a very harmful bacteria that has actually caused death to some consumers.
I eat out less and less all the time ... and never fast food joints.

We'll fry anything, even dill pickles. Yes, we really do eat fried green tomatoes.

You can eat the dead mold.
