6. Pig’s Blood Cake
Blood and cake are two words that really shouldn’t go together. This unique item is made of congealed pig’s blood mixed with sticky rice and bathed in soy sauce. It is served with rice or on a stick. This treat comes from Taiwan, but the use of blood products means it is banned in most regions of the United States.
5. Raw Milk
The interstate sale of unpasteurized milk, known as raw milk, is banned by the FDA in the United States. The pasteurization process kills off bacteria such as Brucella, Campylobacter, Cryptosporidium, E. Coli, Listeria, and Salmonella. Individual states determine their own laws on the sale of raw milk. While some states do allow the sale of raw milk in stores, others allow the sale only on farms where it is produced. Other states allow the sale of raw milk only through cow-share agreements between farmers and consumers.
