While this sage advice makes a great deal of sense, what would lead those who use this dessicant to print such a message on their product?
Were enough people hungry enough after opening computer components and machine parts to warrant such anti-snacking documentation on the Silica gel? Why hasn’t the government stepped in to include federal regulation of packing healthy snack foods in these same packages? I would think that after finding a little packet that says “Do not eat” that there should be something else in there that can be eaten.
Even if there was a Silica Gel Recipe guide included; I still probably wouldn’t eat the stuff.
