US bans vegemite

Much to the annoyance of Australians it appears that the USA has banned the importing of the Vegemite. Apparently, Vegemite contains folate, which is only allowed to be added to breads and cereals in the US, making it effectively illegal. More here.

I once had my jar of Bovril confiscated at JFK.

Was the height of the BSE crisis and it contained beef extract.

Sad, but I was able to console myself at the thought of the mess they would have made with the controlled explosion.
