Did you hear that Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey (one of the things Patrick, above, was drinking moments before gently getting himself into a nice reclining position) was recalled in Europe last week? Seems some countries weren't too pleased with the amount of propylene glycol** found in the sticky-hot super-shot. But it's still on the shelves here in 'Merica.
So, what do you do?
• Nothing! Keep drinkin' it. A li'l prop-glycol ain't gonna hurt nobody!
• Isn't propylene glycol used to make antifreeze? Maybe I'll stop.
• Stop drinking booze altogether, and start eating more bright-yellow Kraft Macaroni & Cheese.
**Propylene glycol is used for a variety of industrial, cosmetic, and food production uses. It's found in Prestone LowTox antifreeze. In Fireball, it's used as a sweetener, its makers say. (And yes, according to the Centers for Disease Control, it's "generally regarded as safe for use in food.")
