Bananas may soon be sprayed down with animal guts to help extend shelf life

Ok. That's disgusting.

Additionally, I can see that causing huge amounts of lethal allergic reactions since it'd be using shellfish as part of the process. Since there are quite a few people who have severe shellfish reactions and since this would permeate the skin of the banana, I could see this as being bad and potential cause of lawsuit.

Sigh.

All in the name of the all-mighty dollar, eh?

Yeah man this is not good at all. I am presuming (perhaps incorrectly) that some companies will not use it, even if it does get made, due to allergy concerns. Also just the "weird" factor, if this reaches enough people, even non-vegans, they might not want their fruit sprayed with shell food, just from an "ew" perspective.
