THE FOLLOWING WARNING HAS GIVEN ME ANOTHER EXCUSE TO USE THIS CARROT PIC.
The following is information from a farmer who grows and
packages carrots for IGA, METRO, LOBLAWS, etc
The small cocktail (baby) carrots you buy in small plastic
bags are made using the larger crooked or deformed carrots
which are put through a machine which cuts and shapes them (NAUTILUS?
into cocktail carrots – most people probably know this
already.( I DID NOT KNOW THIS )
What you may not know and should know is the following:
Once the carrots are cut and shaped into cocktail carrots
they are dipped in a solution of water and chlorine in order
to preserve them) this is the same chlorine used in your
pool). (TASTE LIKE MIKE PHELPS, CAROLYN WALDO)
Since they do not have their skin or natural protective
covering, they give them a higher dose of chlorine. (I THOUGHT SOMEONE IN CHINA WAS PEELING THEM)
You will notice that once you keep these carrots in your
refrigerator for a few days, a white covering will form on
the carrots. This is the chlorine which resurfaces. (WHEN THEY GET LIKE THIS, PUT A HANDFUL OF THEM IN WITH THE WASH)
At what cost do we put our health at risk to have
esthetically pleasing vegetables? (BABY CARROTS DON’T TURN ME ON)
Chlorine is a very well-known carcinogen, which causes
Cancer.. (IT ALSO KILLS NECROTIZING FASCIITIS)
I thought this was worth passing on. Pass it on to as many
people as possible in hopes of informing them where these
carrots come from and how they are processed.
I used to buy those baby carrots for vegetable dips (BEST IN THE RAW) I know
that I will never buy them again!!!!

Ed.: I did buy these from time to time when my kids were small. Sorry guys.This is a terrible story. While the dark forces dicker around with carrots making them develop human traits (as shown above) to fill vacancies in the armies of the world in the war against Al-Falfa, supermarket forces demand the infantilization and forced-sterilization of adult carrots to meet the growing demand for ‘green’ finger food. If the NAACP is now redundant the carrot people should adopt the abbrv.
