Glad I could share this helpful info with you good people. Yep, sure was an eye opener for me too. I do enjoy an nice hot relaxing bath from time to time, but make sure the tub is scrubbed out and dried first. Then I just use good ole H2O. Who knows, maybe the Dollar Store stuff was imported from China...lol.
Oh, and you mentioned the crabcakes.....I suffered flares twice after consuming crabcakes. Don't know whether this was just a fluke or it could have been the fillers used in them. I should mention that the crabcakes were from the same restaurant both times!!! Needless to say, I no longer eat crabcakes or frequent that restaurant.
