Yesterday, I saw a story on cable news that said that Jimmy Dean sausage was being recalled. The reason? It contained MSG that was not labeled. They reported that some people can have a serious "allergic type" reaction to MSG. I almost dropped the remote control. That was the closest I had ever heard the news media coming to saying that MSG was dangerous.

Jimmy Dean isn't the only company caught spiking their sausage with MSG and not putting it on the label:

Food Safety Conference ---Noticed at the http://www.fsis.usda.gov/ link there is a conference forming entitled "Thinking Globally-Working Locally: A Conference on Food Safety Education, Sept 18-20, 2002, Radison Hotel, Orlando, Florida." (Consumers, and Health Associations invited to attend.) Are there Any NoMsg members who can get a 4 x 8 display board together?? Especially Floridians since you are right there. Any of the Florida MS sufferers who just made the connection to MSG want to share your discovery? Here's the opportunity.

Roy,
Thanks for the FSIS website. They have an email address to write to them, which I did. Check it out. It's a govt. agency that's out there to help us MSG sensitive people-HOORAY!

You're welcome. Readers may want to bookmark the FSIS website in case they encounter inadequate or deceptive labeling regarding MSG.

Anonymous - Where is your data coming from? Explain your statistics. This is the internet. Give us some links. Back up your statements. On the MSGTruth.org website I have links to websites in Asia - Asians ARE dropping dead - of stroke in record numbers. Ones living downstream from MSG factories are dying. Asian teens are suffering more near-sightedness and obesity, and autism than ever before, and Japanese scientists recently found that MSG caused mice to go blind. If the Japanese are worried about MSG causing blindness, and Asians are worried about the state of their health, why aren't you? Where did you get the information that Asians never get sick and live forever? Please post your sources - I'd love to see them. Gee maybe you just discovered the fountain of youth. I actually happen to be just as concerned about Asians eating MSG as I am about Westerners eating it. The only Chinese doing well diet wise are the ones eating more fish - they are eating more taurine which protects against MSG reactions. Many are actually dying badly of cancer - as their government allows businesses to pollute their environment. Where have you been living and don't they have newspapers under that rock?

Anonymous, please open your mind to the possibility that you are being dupped the same way all of us here were for years. I, too, believed that doctors were all knowing and that the FDA was protecting our health. Please do your own research and think for yourself when coming to any conclusions. Believe me when I say that I would love it if MSG were safe...it sure would make my life and eating a lot easier....not to mention the fact that we wouldn't be seeing the growing epidemics attributed to glutamte and aspartate toxicty. Go to www.msgtruth.org for more information and real facts about MSG. Do you have any ties to the food industry in any way?
