Sriracha Rooster Sauce Update – Thirty-Day Hold from the California Department of Public Health Causes Supply Hiccups

Tuesday, February 11th, 2014

The Inside Scoop had the scoop in December.

And now in February, the Great Cock Sauce Supply Chain is still hiccuping.

See? Where once was Huy Fong Foods hot sauce, there’s now generic-looking “Sriracha Chili Sauce” with anchovies:

But everything should get back to normal in March, looks like.

Ain’t found a way to kill me yet
Eyes burn with stinging sweat

Yeah here come the rooster, yeah
You know he ain’t gonna die
No, no, no, ya know he ain’t gonna die

What can I say but that it’s Bald Eagle Watch time, baby?

Dese boids are coming in from the north and from the south.

When will we have a nesting pair here in San Francisco?

Your Alarmist Food News of the Day: Lead-Contaminated Honey from China Makes Up One-Third of U.S. Supply?

Friday, August 19th, 2011

Writer Andrew Schneider has been all over his adulterated honey story for a while.

Via Kyle Mizokami, here it is:

Asian Honey, Banned in Europe, Is Flooding U.S. Grocery Shelves – FDA has the laws needed to keep adulterated honey off store shelves but does little, honey industry says.”

Do you buy all that?

So, you see, the mom-and-pop ops in the PRC use lead solder in their unlined honey collection vessels and then the honey gets transshipped to India and then it comes here because it’s banned in the EU, or something like that.

Seems plausible…

Mid-Market Renaissance: Know Your Art Supply Houses – Pearl and Blick – One Old and One New

How could this situation, switching one store for the other, possibly change anything?

What has Blick done for Mid Market that Pearl hasn’t done, that Pearl didn’t do?

That’s a mystery to me.

It wasn’t to our jackass former Mayor, apparently.

But it’s a mystery to me.

Giant Cartoon Map of the San Francisco Water System – Where’s Your Tank?

Wednesday, May 6th, 2009

As promised, A Giant Cartoon Map of the San Francisco Water System, from the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission.

Click on it to swim around and see where your tasty San Francisco wawa comes from. What’s that you say, what about lead and stuff? Well they test for that all the time, Silly Billy. What’s that you say, what about the lead solder that’s in the pipes in your building? Well, one thing you can do is let your water run for a bit to minimise exposure to the lead that’s leached into the water sitting in the pipes. It can’t hoit.

A lovely illustration from the late great Phil Frank.
