Total Recall

Leaving nothing else to enjoy in this New Depression, Japan issues a major ramen recall:

First, Nissin – which invented the instant noodle – recalled 500,000 pots after a woman became ill. She had eaten from a cup containing insect repellent.

Now another Japanese food giant, Myojo, says it too has found the same substance in two of its own pots.

The incidents are the latest in a series of scares that have shaken the confidence of Japanese consumers.
