China today continued the tit-for-tat war of banned foods with America by blocking the import of chicken and pork from two of our largest producers. Tyson Foods and Cargill are both accused of exporting shipments containing chemicals and bacteria.

    If we really wanted to hurt China, we would just shut down all the wally-marts.

    And anyhoo, they need to quit exporting those ‘food-grade’ chemicals and bacteria, we like those in our food here in the good old U S of A!!!

    Hey, at least our banned chicken and pork products come from animals, instead of cardboard soaked in lye.

  5. rubyist says:

    Is the story right? Are you sure our food wasn’t rejected because it *didn’t contain enough* chemicals and bacteria?

    Is it time to fight back now and boycott their products, or is Mum still the word with the government!? It probably wasn’t so much too many chemicals as it was too much pork and chicken. Once chinease get a real taste for it, it’ll be messy.

    You know, if we could live on a fictitious island that only allowed in foods not banned by both countries, we’d all be healthier. No shit-encrusted chicken or beef, hormone or chemical laced meat, and basically all the food exports of China. One can dream…

    To Hell with China and their filthy, dangerous junk. I’d much rather buy something made in the US anyway.

    Show’s how immature China is as a country…Tysons chicken has been found guilty of a few “minor” (illegal immegrints, dumping, and unethical treatment of animals…pretty standard acusations for a mass food producer) unethical praticies. Infact Tysons chicken is one of them leaders in phaltropy when it comes to fighting hunger…. Health has never been one problem of tysons to make headlines of them (go ahead google for it right now, the only articles you find is about this chinese incident), this is obviously a move to attept to make America look bad…nice try china.

    China does realize that if we suddenly placed an embargo on them there country would fall apart in less then a week right?
