More on gummy bears

Saturday, October 02, 2004 11:36 AM

I don't know why the PETA people aren't on this - it seems unfair that scientific experiments should be tolerated on gummy bears just because they're, well, gummy:

"In all cases, E. coli was transferred from the tile to the food, demonstrating that microorganisms can be transferred from ceramic tile to food in 5 seconds or less. More E. coli were transferred to gummy bears from smooth tiles than from rough tiles."

- University of Illinois College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences

Jillian Clarke of the Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences has been awarded the prestigious Ig Nobel prize in Public Health for this scientific investigation of the Five-Second Rule about whether it's safe to eat food that's been dropped on the floor.
