Cadmium Chinese Chicken to be Sold in the USA

Oh joy! Rot gut Chinese chicken will soon be polluting our tables, stomachs and our being.


Top Story – US Senator rips USDA for allowing chicken processed in Communist China to be exported back: Senator Charles Schumer (D-New York) called for “aggressive action by US Department of Agriculture food inspectors” (New York Post) after the department approved the re-importation of chicken sent to Communist China for processing:

‘Given Chinese processors’ poor track record with regard to food-safety standards, the USDA should be taking every possible step to ensure that the chicken that ends up on our plates and in our McNuggets is safe,’ Schumer (D-NY) said at a press conference.

He rattled off a nauseating list of Chinese food scandals, including arsenic found in calamari and rice, pasta infested with maggots, pumpkin seeds mixed with glass chips and rat meat sold as lamb.

‘And to top it off, on-site US inspectors will not be required at these sites so there is simply no guarantee that food safety laws are up to United States standards,’ Schumer said.

The chicken also won’t have to be labeled as coming from China.

For the Communist Chinese Party, this is a perfect combination: they food can come over here with the “Made in USA” imprimatur – and a precedent is set for anything from Virginia that Smithfield Foods would send to Communist China for processing. Are you listening, Smithfield shareholders?Also reporting: Epoch Times
