Watch Jon Stewart Learn What's in His Favorite Fast Foods

Hillary Dixler Canavan is Eater's restaurant editor and the author of the publication's debut book, Eater: 100 Essential Restaurant Recipes From the Authority on Where to Eat and Why It Matters (Abrams, September 2023).

Last night on the Daily Show host Jon Stewart was thwarted in his efforts to have a mid-show snack by various recalls and product changes. Before settling into a sandwich from Subway, Stewart learns that Subway is in the process of removing a chemical from their bread that is also used in yoga mats: "Yoga mats, huh? Maybe that's why every time I eat at Subway I end up in the bathroom in the lotus position."

Stewart doesn't fare any better with Kraft American Singles, whose artificial preservatives will be replaced with a "natural mold inhibitor," or Hot Pockets, which have been recalled due to "diseased and unsound" beef. Shocked that Hot Pockets are not just made from "stuff they found in their pockets," Stewart wonders if his favorite flavors like Ham & Bottlecap and Lint & Canadian Pennies have been recalled too.
