Dying for a Cocktail

Reality star Bethenny Frankels SkinnyGirl Margarita mix was pulled from the shelves of Whole Foods Markets recently, for “using a preservative that does not meet their quality standards“.

Apparently the product contains sodium benzoate, a popular preservative that makes the drink mix shelf stable. It also becomes carcinogenic if mixed with vitamin C, found in the lime garnishes frequently used for margaritas.

Before you reach for that SkinnyGirl drink, you might want to ask yourself if you are really “dying for a Margerita“,or if that‘s just a figment of speech.
