Can this be true? Please tell me it's April 1st

Below is a quotation about Food Standards in the USA from

"In the US, producers adhere to a "Defect Levels Handbook," which sets out the maximum number of foreign bodies like maggots, insect fragments and mould that can be in food products before they are put on the market.

"For example, US producers are allowed to include up to 30 insect fragments in a 100-gram jar of peanut butter; as well as 11 rodent hairs in a 25-gram container of paprika; or 3 milligrams of mammalian excreta (typically rat or mouse excrement) per each pound of ginger."

Do you believe it?

Dear Mr. Essberger, hello, I have learned in this world to believe the unbelievable. May may refuse what the American president's offer. I guess it is for our own good to eat and close the other eye from those tiny things in our food. Oh, I forgot to add, we have a saying during eating (step on smaller things). An article to be considered!
