Fox for donkey meat is not so bad

CHINA-MARKET

In China police in Guangdong Province have arrested seven people for injecting dirty water in sheep carcasses to increase the weight of the meat hence its value.

CCTV reported yesterday that officials raided the warehouse in a village in Baiyun district and found the men injecting bacteria-filled water into slaughtered sheep as a way to increase the weight of the meat and sell it for a high price, according to Shanghai Daily.

The man in charge of the operation and six workers at the warehouse have been held by police since the raid on December 30.

Officials found 30 sheep carcasses injected with up to six kilograms of pond water along with 335 living sheep, forged inspection stamps, pumps and rubber tubing in the warehouse. Suspects admitted to police that around 50 to 100 sheep were slaughtered there per day.  

Pond water was injected into the carcasses before the blood clotted, and the meat then sold to meat markets, food stalls, canteens and restaurants in Guangzhou city, Foshan city and elsewhere in the province.

The water came from ponds and was said to contain massive quantities of harmful bacteria.

Water-injected meat poses great danger to health and the water used in most cases is polluted. Long-term consumption can lead to a host of diseases, including cancer.

It isn’t just food that isn’t safe in China. Their are the fake brand name condoms that may not work and fake sanitary napkins that made women ill.

Unfortunately for China finding these types of stories is like shooting fish in a barrel – just too easy.

And they have the cheek to lecture us on food safety and product recalls.
