The unnamed customers have already eaten some of the salad when they noticed the dead bat.
The dangerous superbug called Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) can now be transmitted to humans by consuming or even handling contaminated poultry, a new study reveals.
After resolving the "deep-fried rat" issue, KFC is once again in the headlines over concerns of the fast food chain's cleanliness and sanitation.
A recent study shed light on the presence of BPA, or Bisphenol A, in canned food--in particular, in every two out of three tested cans.
A new study involving the ways ravens behave when they think they are being spied on suggests these famously intelligent birds posses the human-like ability of abstract thought.
Smaller hatchlings who have to compete with larger siblings for food grow up become obese adults birds, say researchers who tested starling hatchlings to determine whether competition for food after birth had a long-lasting effect.
Using nano-sized particles of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, researchers have found a way to increase the growth and antioxidant content of tomato plants. This may soften the impact population growth has on natural resources in the future.
Halloween is nearly upon us, and that means spooky costumes, trick-or-treating, and caramel apples! However, it's not just unwrapped candy that vigilant parents should look out for. According to new research, Listeria monocytogenes can grow on candy-coated apples.
Let's be honest, a LOT of things can supposedly give you cancer, especially considering that cancer is nothing more than mutated cells forgetting where they are supposed to be. Radiation, toxins, and even inflammation can all screw with the natural order of things. Now, researchers are adding a new item to the ever-growing list of carcinogens: amber food coloring.

It's no secret that scientists and the general public don't always see eye-to-eye about things. Animal testing, GMOs, and climate change are all hot-button topics for debate.

The American Chemical Society (ACS) recently released a video attempting to put the egregiously wrong rumors about this common ingredient down for good.
If you're a consumer who takes a strong stance against genetically modified (GM) crops, or GMOs, you may want to catch the next plane to Europe.

Some gluten free foods have been found to boast worrying concentrations of arsenic, as revealed by the analyses of flour, cakes, bread, pasta and other foods made with rice.
Experts are trying to promote the recent creation of Genetically Edited Organisms (GEOs) as a preferable alternative to gene-insertion-based Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) crops. A very specific type of GMO, they say, has been raising concerns with governments and the public alike, and the editing of a plant within the bounds of its own natural genetic information may simply be a preferable course of action.
