By the time they find themselves in there they don't get time to vomit unlike flies do on your cinnamon danish pastry, so it's ok. .I don't think she mentioned the mites in flour but they don't worry me too much. You'd see aphids on your broccoli in the garden so at least if you grow your own you could avoid them. And I don't drink wine. Enjoy your Stinkbugs

Yeah but how do you know what happened in the factory or field?

I don't, but I have to put some trust in human decency, food safety rules, supervision etc, and the fact that on the farm or factory floor people stand to lose their job if they do something disgusting/careless/unhygienic. As you yourself pointed out if you were very paranoid you'd never eat.

I know for a fact that some people lick food and handle food with dirty hands, in shops, with no repercussions to stop them doing it, and flies can crawl on it, so I'd rather cut out that one bit of dirt.

Agree totally. Good hygiene and care are sense not paranoia .

Was in a huge tesco a while back, with a high roof, and there was a bird flying around, singing ....

Reminds me of another thing I avoid...many years ago at a work Christmas do drinks were arranged at the local before heading for dinner. A few of the lads were held up on a job and came straight to the pub without a chance to change or get cleaned up. One normally obnoxious &^*#K was in fine form, reached over the bar and grabbed a few slices of lime (it was the lime in corona hayday) , delved inside his jumper and gave both armpits a good scrub, saying lime is a natural deodorant, before flicking the slices over the bar where they landed back in the lime bowl...
