I received a forwarded email from a co-worker regarding baby carrots. The email claims to be from Lorrain C. Kelly at Health Canada. It claims that baby carrots are made from mis-shapen regular carrots (that's how they came to be) and that they are soaked in chlorine (common in fresh cut vegetable processing) which causes them to turn white in the refrigerator (dehydration- happens with all carrots after they're cut). I contacted Lorrain C. Kelly who responded that the advisory does NOT come from Health Canada. The email response included a link to www.digitaljournal.com/article/260034.
