Chicken Tenders

August 2008

Are you seeing more and more food from China in your supermarket? Have you noticed you can't buy a single package of fish that isn't from China or Vietnam? Do you think your food from those countries is processed in a sanitary manner, and thus safe to eat? Unlike the U.S. and Canada, China does not have laws regulating food processing. Many companies are using Hong Kong addresses for products from other countries. Remember that Wal-Mart is one of the largest buyers of Chinese products.

These undercover pictures speak a thousand words.

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

Asking around for dead chickens

Several riders are hired by the boss to ride to farms to buy dead chickens.

Storage for the dead chickens in the court yard.

Carcasses are thrown everywhere.

And on the floor....

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

Enduring the pungent odor sometimes gets so terrible
that even the most experienced of the workers will 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.

Walking among the chickens during the coloring processing.

After the coloring, the chickens are actually quite tenderized.

And now presenting the mouth watering Charcoal Roasted Chicken!

Send the link to this page http://www.all-creatures.org/articles/ar-chickentenders.html to many people as one more wonderful reason to be vegan.
