Europe's ugly fruits and veg get a green thumbs-up - Boston.com

Apparently, the EU just threw out 100 pages of rules and regulations about selling only perfect fruits and vegetables. Before, the bumpy carrots and warped zucchinis got pitched into the compost because it was - can you believe it?! - illegal to sell them. They wanted to ensure properly sized and shaped vegetables and fruits. Now, due to the food shortages around the world, they feel it is irresponsible to limit what can be sold as food and have done away with these regulations.

This is so ridiculous I can hardly stand it. Clearly, they need to get outside in the fresh air and play more batminton and polo. To read the full article at www.boston.com, click here.
