Chinese Chicken Processing - Yum!!!

Well, are you enjoying seeing Chinese food popping up in your supermarket left and right?  Have you noticed you can't buy a single package of fish that isn't made in China (or Vietnam)?  Do you think your food from China is processed in a sanitary manner, and thus safe to eat?  Take a look at this!!!

Caveat: the enclosed pictures speak a thousand words.  Avoid buying all processed food packaged in China.  Anything goes!  We just don't know what else is in those packages. Unlike in the U.S., China does not have laws regulating food processing. On that note: also avoid using disposable chopsticks in the restaurant.  Apparently, they have been bleached to look white!  We certainly don't need bleach in our body.

Basically, do not buy any processed food from China, and sometimes Hong Kong, too.  Some companies are using a Hong Kong address to avoid this type of image reputation.

Early dawn, starts the day by riding around to collect dead chickens

Asking around for dead chickens.
Total of 5 riders are hired by the boss to ride to farms 
to buy dead chickens

A dead chicken cost 1 RMB and would be sold at 9 RMB after processing   
Storage for the dead chickens in the court yard.

carcasses are thrown everywhere.

And on the floor....

4 employees start de-feathering the dead fowl 
after soaking in boiling water from a rusty wok.

Enduring the pungent odor, but sometime, it get so terrible 
that even the most experience
d of the workers would puke.

Workers rushing to get the chickens de-feathered.

A discarded bath tub being used to soak the bare skin dead chickens
the contaminated water would have accelerated the decomposition process

 Wearing slippers walking among the chickens before the coloring processing.

After the color dye, its creepy to find that they are quite tenderized

And now presenting the mouth watering Charcoal Roasted Chicken!


Send to as many people as possible. 
Do NOT buy food
Originating in China (or Vietnam or Thailand)!
Take the time to read the labels and look for country
of origin!
