> A mysterious Skittles spill on a rural highway in Wisconsin is taking another twist, with Mars Inc. saying it doesn't know why the discarded candy might have been headed to become cattle feed.

>The case began when a Wisconsin sheriff posted on Facebook this week that "hundreds of thousands of Skittles" had been found spilled on a highway. Later, he updated the post to say the candy had fallen off a truck on its way to be cattle feed.

>Only red Skittles had spilled out, and Dodge County Sheriff Dale Schmidt joked in the post that it would be difficult to "Taste the Rainbow" in its entirety. The incident gained attention after CNN wrote about it, citing a report from a local affiliate.

I don't feel good about eating the meat from an animal that spent its life subsisting off of red skittles.

I'm sure the cattle were going to eat exclusively skittles. Definitely not a mix of other miscellaneous garbage.

Look up what a rendering plant is and where animal feed comes from.

I bet there was a mistake at the candy factory (hence only one color) and the candies were safe but unsellable. They probably forgot the flavoring, or used the wrong flavoring.

Cows can eat almost any type of carb and protein as long as it's mixed into their silage. This is how the mad cow stuff started because the cattlemen were feeding dried ground up cow brains back to other cows to save money (which is now illegal).

They do weird stuff like this in industry all the time. A few years ago a company made a couple hundred tons of garlic salt and it went stale, so they donated it to the city to be used as road salt.

My dad has told me a story about some farmer he knew going to some corporate bakery and buying pickup truck loads of those pie crusts already In the tin. He guy used to scrape them out of the tins and into the trough, but he just got lazy one day and started chucking the things in. Every time the farmer would pull up other the cage the pigs would start hauling ass for the fence and all you'd hear was the fuckin CLANK CLANK CLANK.
