How do you like those apples? Waxy, with a chemical sheen.

So, you know how regular apples are nice and shiny, but organic ones aren’t? Well. There’s a product called Apple Lustr, and it or something like it gets sprayed on apples to make ’em so shiny and waxy and yummy looking. Here’s some info from the product information the company distributes. Note that this isn’t written by hippies who fertilize their gardens with their own pee and eat their placentas and weird stuff like that. This is released by the company who’s trying to sell the product.

“If swallowed, this material may cause digestive tract irritation and central nervous system effects such as headache, dizziness, nausea, drowsiness, and, in severe exposures, loss of consciousness.”

Oh, thanks for letting me know. I’ll be sure not to swallow my apples.
