HuffPost Food posted an article from KitchenDaily called "Food Lies" about the hidden sugar in many supposedly healthy foods. I wouldn't call many of these sugars "hidden" however - milk contains lactOSE, which is a sugar, and pre-packaged oatmeal - pre-packaged anything really - is bound to have more sugar than its unpackaged counterpart. Plus, a little sugar in food that's otherwise wholesome doesn't hurt anybody - I'll keep my katchup and salad dressing and instead lay off the Mountain Dew and candy, thanks.
The FDA has found listeria bacterium in an Augusta, Georgia Kellogg cookie Plant.

Probably not worth it for a few Famous Amos...better lay off those sugary snacks too.
Atlanta chefs Clifford Harrison and Anne Quatrano were named Hometown Heros in Food & Wine's Best New Chefs Hall of Fame. Congrats!
Eater published an article that takes a look at overfishing through the eyes of five chefs.

The Environmental Working Group published a guide cataloguing the "dirty dozen" of produce - fruits and vegetables that contain the most pesticides.

The guide also includes the "clean fifteen" which are the fruits and veggies that contain the least amount of pesticides, including onions, sweet corn and pineapples.
An article from BBC Travel highlights how pies have gained in popularity around the country, and how different regions are known for certain pie styles and recipes. And it points out some interesting pie-related facts - apparently, three U.S. states have a state pie, and there's actually such a thing as the American Pie Council.
One doughnut from each shop is definitely a weird way to do this Smackdown. It…
