Fig Newtons

Subject: Fig Newtons

Dear Nabisco,

I love your Fig Newtons and eat them almost every day. They are a great light and healthy snack.

I recently became alarmed at the possibility that these tasty cakes may be infested with fig wasps. What sort of quality assurance procedures ensure that wasps are not present in the figs used in your cookies?
