Character error 

In the scene at the Stuff factory, they stumble across a room full of Stuffies dressed in yellow, lying on the floor. In the shot directly after Jason says "Whatever was inside of them must have just taken off," the camera pans around all of the Stuffies, who all have their mouths open and tongues sticking out. The actor at the top of the screen (the farthest from camera) is wiggling his mouth and tongue rapidly, indicating that not only he is very much alive, but quite likely didn't even hear the director's call of action.

Continuity 

When Mo and Charlie enter the post office, it's daytime - quite possibly afternoon. The moment they talk to the letter carrier inside, it's suddenly nighttime.

Crew or equipment visible

Errors in geography 

Colonel Spears says that his radio station is based in Atlanta, Georgia (where his militia and he eventually broadcast the final warning). However, the signs on the wall of the station say WGHQ 92, a New York-based radio station, and the exteriors are of WBPM, which is in Kingston, New York.

Revealing mistakes 

When Ben the dog leaves Mr. Vicker's side as Moe says, "Well, I suppose if both of you eat it, it's got to be all right," you can very briefly hear the on-set dog handler tell the dog to stay put.

During the hotel room scene when the stuff is pushing the man up the wall, if you look closely where the two main characters are supposed to be standing and watching the event, you can see they are replaced by stand-ins, and only the characters' voices can be heard.

During the Taste scene at the end with Patrick O'Neal, his character says, "We tested it. We tested it in a small Illinois Town." Between those two sentences, a car horn sounds off from outside the building.
