10 Food Products That (Thankfully) Flopped


Jell-o NLT.jpg



When we go to the supermarket, we have certain expectations of the products that we’ll see there. For example, french fries will not taste like chocolate. Jell-O will not be celery-flavored. Candy bars will be sweet, not taste like a chicken dinner. When these expectations are turned on their heads, not only is there a bit of bewilderment, it’s just bizarre.

A Career of Making Good Decisions All Along the Way


Bay Anna and Fred.jpg

Last May, Fred Weber, his wife Bay and daughter Anna, explored the national parks in America’s southwest. This May will find them cruising the Greek Islands with friends. If things go as planned, next year will take them to Iceland and Scotland. When he’s not touring distant places, Fred prefers to stay close to home — his farm house in Princeton, New Jersey, a beach house on the Jersey shore, a condo in Philadelphia and, of course, the familiar setting of his office at Weber Scientific in Hamilton, New Jersey.

BEER QUIZ nlt.jpg

Remember memorizing the names of continents and capitals for seventh-grade geography tests? Here’s a version for map-savvy adults who have moved on to other hoppies, er, hobbies—namely, beer. Tell us where the following brews are made, and we'll tell you a fascinating fact about each one.

Food-allergens 2-NLT.jpg

Undeclared allergens a leading cause of food recalls in U.S.

Food recalls related to illness outbreaks tend to get a lot of headlines, but undeclared allergens in foods continue to be a leading cause of recalls.

In the past 60 days, there have been 44 food recalls posted by the Food and Drug Administration, with 19 of them for undeclared allergens. That would have by far accounted for the majority of food recalls, had it not been for 10 cheese recalls that involved one manufacturer.

For 2016, the U.S. Department of Agriculture reports 34 of the 122 food recalls under its jurisdiction were because of undeclared allergens. That’s more recalls than E. coli, Salmonella and Listeria contamination caused in 2016, which combined accounted for 27 recalls of meat, poultry and catfish in 2016.
