I liked baby carrots before I knew this. I would slow a roast withe baby carrots, small red potatoes and onion, It was always good, but have not had it in years.

Right if you read the article YOU quote. Nowhere does it say these are 'ground up'. Your meme says baby carrots yet the article is mainly concerned with baby CUT carrots and these are different things.
Yes they are washed in chlorinated water but SO is your drinking water and you ought to be much more concerned with that.
Your meme is a kind of fake news in that it takes something and makes inferences from half truths. Your meme suggests that carrots are crushed up, washed in chlorine and then reformed into baby carrot shapes -that's NOT what your article says is happening at all smile003.gif

@JimmyM I didn't say anything about anything being ground up, and it isn't "my meme." Baby carrots are ground down, I don't know what happens to the castings. I don't eat them, I buy who carrots and cut them up when I want smaller pieces. I don't buy highly processed foods. And my drinking water is filtered.

I don't think this is correct

Thanks! I had no idea.

You're welcome, you know when you let them sit too long they have that white stuff on them that's the chlorine.

@Sheannutt uh, actually I've never purchased them except incidentally as an accompaniment to hot wings.

@Pook tymh

can't they be policed by the FDA?

AntaresRose Level 8 July 24, 2018

They really don't know.

@Sheannutt but chlorine? that is deadly.

@BettyColeman they know what amount to use that isn't deadly to humans. I just prefer to stay away from that kind of food.

@Sheannutt me too.

I always wondered. I have bought them for my grandson because he likes them better than potato chips. Now I know. Organic carrots! I can cut them up myself.

confidentrealm Level 7 July 24, 2018

that is what I do, cut my own, much cheaper and healthier.

I am curious what happens to the parts that are ground away?

Maybe they sell it for dog food, I have no idea but that is a good question.

Or possibly juiced....
