Why in the world would people even think that the deadly chemical called phostoxin would even be in all the brands of Frito Lay corn chips?
Frito Lay's snack chips are completely healthy and have no harmful chemicals in them whatsoever.
I mean, it's not like there are traces of phostoxin powder baked into their tortilla chips. I mean any trace amounts of that stuff in doritos, scoops tostitos, cheetos, baked cheetos, or any other of their corn made products would be real bad on the human body and mind.
They don't even have phostoxin powder mixed in with the corn kernels during the warmer months in the train cars which deliver the corn kernels. Therefore, there is no chance of any phostoxin powder ever reaching the end process during manufacturing and being in the finished product.
A place like this thinks 100% about the safety of their employees and customers.
I mean phostoxin powder being used during the warmer months in the train cars which deliver the corn kernels would make a very good insect repellent since the fumes from the phostoxin powder kills all living things, but, unless there was some type of a filter system which would allow the whole corn kernels to go through while at the same time not allowing the finer phostoxin powder to pass, then the phostoxin powder would just get sucked into the silos right along with the corn kernels and then from there it would all go into some type of soak tanks and then into some type of boil tanks before going into some type of cooker which bakes and makes the chips.
Phostoxin powder reacts to and is reactivated by H2O, so i doubt that this place would take any chance whatsoever of any amount of phostoxin powder that has been reactivated by the water in soak and boil tanks to reach and get into any of the finished chips.

But of course even if there was a way to separate the corn kernels from the phostoxin powder during the whole process, the fumes from the phostoxin powder or packets would just be absorbed into the whole corn kernels or cornmeal while on the way to the plant in the traincars, kind of like when corn or any other plant absorbs sunlight, water and air, so therefore the phostoxin would be inside of the corn kernels and cornmeal used to make any of chips that are made from corn kernels or cornmeal, so i really seriously doubt that this place would even chance using something like phostoxin anywhere during any of the stages of the manufacturing process.

But don't worry, even if a company like this did use a very very harmful chemical like phostoxin at any one of their manufacturing facilities during any part of the raw material delivery and manufacturing process then they would have a quality control department in place which would make sure that there were 0.00% levels of phostoxin or any other harmful chemical in the finished food product.
And you would not have to worry about a reputable company like this paying off FDA officials to overlook any harmful 'by-product' chemicals that could end up in the finished food product because that harmful 'by-product' chemical is being used during the delivery of the corn kernels and cornmeal which in turn could cause that chemical to be present during the different stages of the manufacturing process.
