I read in the newspaper yesterday that Canada has banned Marmite and Iron Bru???

I think its somewhat extreme tbh. Im not an iron bru drinker never liked it that much and I detest marmite (you either love it or you hate it right??)

Still I think completely banning them was a bit extreme but that's Canadians for you I suppose coffee

See below newspaper report Whistle

Canada orders Briton to stop selling Marmite and Irn-The consolations of Irn Bru and Marmite .

The owner of a British food shop in Canada says he has been ordered to stop selling Marmite, Ovaltine and Irn-Bru because they contain illegal additives.

Tony Badger, who owns a chain called Brit Foods, told local media that food safety officials blocked a large import shipment of the popular products.

Mr Badger said he had been selling the items since 1997.

Food safety officials confirmed some items were barred for sale but said only meat was removed from the store.

"We've been bringing Irn-Bru in since the very beginning," Mr Badger told CKOM.

The bright orange caffeinated drink is particularly popular in Scotland, but sold in countries around the world.

"My understanding was we were importing legally. We've been declaring it through a customs broker and we've never had an issue until now," said Mr Badger.

No health risk
Press Association Irn-Bru is the most popular soft drink in Scotland
Irn-Bru contains the food colouring Ponceau 4R. It is not permitted in foods for sale in Canada, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) said in a statement to the BBC.

The colouring has been linked to hyperactivity.

In addition, the agency told the BBC that "drinks and a yeast-based spread" found in the Brit Foods shipment and subsequently on the shelves in the shops were not approved for sale in Canada. The agency did not list specific brand names.

It said the spread was banned because it contained added vitamins "not permitted to be added to spreads" under Canadian food regulations.

The agency said the shop had come to its inspectors' attention when a shipment was rejected at customs in Montreal because it contained meat.

Canada does not allow importation of beef products from the UK.

The CFIA said that during a follow-up visit to Brit Foods the meat was "placed under detention because of improper documentation".

But the agency said the drinks and spread found at Brit Foods shops, while in violation of Canada's food safety laws, were not a health risk and were not removed from the store shelves.

"These are technical violations of the regulations," the agency told the BBC in a statement. "There is no food safety risk associated with these products."

'Insanity'

Mr Badger said he first ran into trouble in October when his Christmas stock was seized as it was imported from Britain.

He is worried he will no longer be able to import the popular items.

"The concern now is, with the next shipment, if it gets held there may be new issues with new products, so it somewhat paralyses our ability to bring new product in," he said, adding the delays had already cost him thousands of dollars.

But he said the agency was now conducting a health assessment on the foods to determine whether they were fit for sale.

"I haven't heard of anyone dying from consuming Irn-Bru in Scotland or Britain," he said. "So hopefully we will get a favourable decision."

One customer, Briton Nigel Westwick, told the Star Phoenix newspaper that he "couldn't understand the insanity" of preventing Irn-Bru from entering Canada.

"For a country that allows one to buy firearms, guns, bullets... stopping a soft drink suitable for all ages seems a little ludicrous."

The CFIA told the BBC it had initiated an investigation and would "take appropriate action as needed".

The 18-year old Nhurah A. was caught having sex with a cow in Indonesia. Therefore he had to marry it. He collapsed during the ceremony and the cow got drowned in the sea.

There are only two human organs whose ONLY purpose is sexual pleasure. Has no other function. Women have both (clitoris and g-spot) and men have neither. Yet many men seem to think sex is all about their pleasure!

the latest robin hood movie (Russell Crowe) is full of historical inaccuracies.

amongt them being a bad timeline that would put the story 30 years later then its meant to be by legend.

It is believed that Shakespeare was 46 around the time that the King James Version of the Bible was written. In Psalms 46, the 46th word from the first word is shake and the 46th word from the last word is spear.

Currently, the top 5 school districts based on size (the number of students enrolled) are:

1. New York City, New York
2. Los Angeles Unified School District, California
3. Chicago Public Schools, Illinois
4. Miami-Dade County Public Schools, Florida
5. Clark County School District, Nevada

Now... Wikipedia will say Puerto Rico Public is #3, but since that's not yet a state, it's up to you if it counts our not. Some count it... some do not.

Until just a few weeks ago, Iceland had a law that allowed the murder on sight of any Basque people, dating back from 1615.
