    Scandals Breaking Like China Dolls​

    The two articles below are about China. They are from a blog managed by Jonathon Turley, a Georgetown University Law Professor. The first one is called, “The Incredible Inedible Egg: Chinese Face New Food Threat of Fake Eggs”. One could invent tainted milk, lead in the toys sold at Wal-Mart and other outlets in the US and many other unimaginable things, but to create a fake eggs for its own population consumption where according to 2008 data people consumed 333 eggs, which is almost one egg a day for 1.35 billion people and with the increasing consumption, it becomes a very creative idea. So, one cannot fault China to invent fake eggs in order to keep up with the demand.

    The second is called, “Mao Meat Sale: Chinese Seize Chicken Feet and Meat From 1967”. No, this is not the Antique Road Show on PBS. It is for today’s consumption after going through rejuvenation.

    We are sure you will enjoy them. Do not worry about the after taste. Just use your comments to share it with us.

    The Incredible Inedible Egg: Chinese Face New Food Threat of Fake Eggs
    Published 1, July 9, 2013

    China is facing a new food scandal over fake eggs. Sellers are offering eggs on the street for about 6 cents cheaper than stores. When Chinese buyers take them home they find that they taste funny and the yolk quickly mixes into the rest of the egg. The reason is that they are not eggs but a concoction of resin, algae, wax, and other ingredients.

    Here is how to make a fake egg. Take a mold and mix in resin, starch, coagulant and pigments to make egg white. Then add sodium alginate from brown algae for viscosity and add a fake yolk from resin and pigments. Once the egg is solidified, use an amalgamate of paraffin wax, gypsum powder and calcium carbonate to make the shell.

    Fake eggs have been appearing since the 90s but appear to have increased recently with people producing 1,500 fake eggs per day.

    And that’s cheaper and easier than waiting for one to just drop out of a chicken?

    Obviously a recipe for “Egg Fool Young”

    ….Looks like there will not be a “crack” to case anytime soon!

    Three Steps To The Outhouse by Who Flung Foo. Copyright 1974. The book explains the “convergence” of capitalism and communism and has a chapter on fake eggs.


    Mao Meat Sale: Chinese Seize Chicken Feet and Meat From 1967
    Published 1, July 9, 2013

    It appears that there is something worse than fake eggs. Chinese police in Guangxi raided a storage site and found decades-old chicken feet — some dating to the cultural revolution in 1967. A criminal gang smuggled chicken feet, beef tripe and cartilage from Vietnam — some 20 tons of bad meat and chicken feet that were processed with bleach and other chemicals to hide the smell.

    The gang was smuggling the meat from Vietnam and using bleach and other chemicals to add weight and improve its coloring. Restaurants were buying the old meat knowingly and cooking it in ways to hide the pungent smell.

    The police also seized hundreds of bear paws in different raids that are part of a booming Chinese demand for exotic and endangered animal parts.

    Poignant or pungent? Police often make the same mistake when testifying as to the odor of unburned marijuana. It always makes for a good laugh in the courtroom.

    When in China don’t buy anything claimed to be “spam”. I’d tell ya what it really is but you would get a gag order.

    Are there any dogs or cats in China? Or is it like in Seoul, where dogmeat is for sale along with beef, chicken, etc.

    Remind me again why I don’t like Chinese food?!

    One wonders how China overtook the U.S. and Germany in the global economy’s export dynamics.

    I guess chicken feet aren’t like vintage wine.

    Knowingly?? KNOWINGLY?? Yikes. “Ah, 1967…a very good year for chicken feet…they don’t get older, they just get better…”
