Beware of all foods from China!

Rate this post

I received the following email from a trusted friend, Sol Sanders, who’s a longtime Asia correspondent. The information in the email is also consistent with what I’ve researched on the net. “USDA approves import of chicken processed in China despite safety concerns” has a list of Chinese food safety incidents which reads like a horror story.
I’ve long stopped buying any foods — produce, frozen seafood, canned — from China. After reading this email, I will also stop buying any foods, esp. seafood, imported from S.E. Asian countries like Vietnam, Thailand, Philippines, and Indonesia because, as I had suspected, they’re probably disguised “made in China” foods all along.
Sol has an addendum to the email about nori — an edible seaweed: “Also there is a problem with nori now — Korean nori which is widely sold in Japan and sometimes marked ‘made in Japan’ when it arrives at Costco, for example, is badly contaminated with human waste!”
The email is below.
Made in China
I checked this out on Snopes “Tilapia from China”  they say in the report most of it is true…
I purchased Tilapia from Walmart last week. I read the label and it was just as the article stated “packaged in Jacksonville, FL but processed in China. After reading it, I threw it in the garbage. At my sister-in-law’s suggestion, I took out of the garbage and took it back to Walmart. It had started to thaw before taking it back and inside the sealed (unopened) wrapper, there were little black particles that appeared to be feces. I took this e-mail with me and the customer service lady told me that she was familiar with it and as much as her kids liked Talapia, they don’t eat it anymore. I left the entire e-mail wit her because it doesn’t just address Talapia.
I read several articles on Google about this, and even one that was defending the eating of tilapia said to avoid the fish that came from China.
Also, I had just returned home from buying Publix & Albertson’s 4-day special of 4 bags of frozen tilapia for the price of one. Sure enough, on the top of the bags, it read “farm raised”, and on the bottom in small print it said, “China”.
I recently saw a Food inspector on TV. He said he had lived overseas and he had seen the filthy conditions their foods are raised and processed in. It is enough to make you throw up. Some foreign workers have to wear masks as they work in these places, because the food is so rotten and filthy, it makes them want to throw up. Many of their fish on fish farms are fed raw sewage daily. He said he has seen so much filth throughout their food growing and processing that he would “never” eat any of it. They raise this filth, put some food coloring and some flavorings on it, then they ship it to the USA for YOU to consume and feed to YOUR families. They have no Food & Safety Inspectors. They ship it to you to buy and poison your families and friends.
Green Giant frozen vegetables are from China , and so are most of Europe’s best. Arctic Gardens are okay. So is Birdseye.
Never buy the grocery store garlic unless it is clearly marked from USA or Canada. Garlic from China is grown in people poop (even worse than chicken poop). China is the largest producer of garlic in the world; U.S. is next.
Buy only local honey, much honey is shipped in huge containers from China and re-packed here.
Cold-FX (a product derived from ginseng) is grown and packed in China and is full of fecal bacteria. Doesn’t work anyway, big scam.
If the country of origin is not clearly marked, beware. If produce, ask an employee. Watch out for packages which state “prepared for,” “packed by” or “imported by”. I don’t understand the lack of mandatory labeling, especially the produce. The country of origin should be clearly shown on the item in the store. I go to the local farmers’ markets in season and keep a wary eye open the rest of the year.
For example, the “Our Family” brand of Mandarin oranges says right on the can: “From China.” So for a few more cents, buy the Liberty, Gold, or Dole brands instead. They’re from California. And beware of Costco’s canned peaches and pears in a plastic jar — they’re from China. 
All “High Liner” and most other frozen fish products come from China or Indonesia. The package may say “Pacific Salmon” on the front, but look for the small print. Most of these products come from fish farms in the Orient where there are no regulations on what is fed to these fish.
Recently The Montreal Gazette had an article by the Canadian Government on how Chinese feed the fish: They suspend chicken wire crates over the fish ponds, and the fish feed on chicken s–t. If you search the Internet about what the Chinese feed their fish, you’ll be alarmed; e.g., growth hormones, expired anti-biotics from humans.  Never buy any type of fish or shellfish that comes from these countries: Vietnam, China, Philippines.
Check this out personally; I did. Steinfeld’s Pickles are made in India – just as bad!
Another example is in canned mushrooms. No-Name brand came from Indonesia. Also check those little fruit cups. They used to be made in Canada in the Niagara region until about 2 years ago. They are now packaged in China!

How is it possible to ship food from China cheaper than having it produced in the U.S. or Canada?

While the Chinese export inferior and even toxic products, dangerous toys, and goods to be sold in North American markets, the media wrings its hands!  Yet, 70% of North Americans believe that the trading privileges afforded to the Chinese should be suspended!
Well, duh! Why do you need the government to suspend trading privileges?
Simply look on the bottom of every product you buy, and if it says ‘Made in China’ or ‘PRC’ (and that now includes Hong Kong ), simply choose another product, or none at all.You will be amazed at how dependent you are on Chinese products, and you will be equally amazed at what you can do
THINK ABOUT THIS: If millions of North Americans refuse to buy just $20 each of Chinese goods, that’s a billion dollar trade imbalance resolved in our favor… fast! The downside? Some Canadian/American businesses will feel a temporary pinch from having foreign stockpiles of inventory.
Just one month of trading losses will hit the Chinese for 8% of their North American exports.  Then they will at least have to ask themselves if the benefits of their arrogance and lawlessness are worth it.

  1. Wow! Thank you for putting this story up, Dr. Eowyn.
    We already try to avoid Chinese goods in the hardware store and big box stores. But this health threat is a “clear and present danger”, as we Tom Clancy fans like to say.

  3. excellent article. they are very deceptive with food labeling. Depopulation is the goal folks. Chicken and pork, (pork being Smithsfields from USA) sold out to China. Grow your own. Get heirloom garden seeds. Our Rancher’s and Farmers must be protected at all costs. Meanwhile, China is buying up Real Estate here as fast as they can. Tell the govt. to go pound sand. Remember the “Food Safety Bill” the communists passed? “Constitution” and “Nullify” are the words for 2014.

  4. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this most important post. I learned, much to my dismay, about parasites from watching “Monsters Inside Me”. China and other foreign countries, including Latin America, market food, including meats, fish and fruit, that can be hazardous, even deadly; they contain parasites that are truly dangerous. I am so grateful that you have provided this in-depth information to everyone.

  5. Friends, I’ve known about this from reading histories of agriculture in other nations. There’s a classic text, came out around 1900, written by a fellow w/family name of King, who was the USDA Secretary at the time. He went to China and observed how they farmed, then returned and wrote “Farmers of Forty Centuries”. I learned a very great deal to admire, and as much to shake my head about!
    Now, when a nation has practices that are ingrained, one cannot expect them to change. So when I read that about 35 yrs ago, I stopped eating foods from China, EXCEPT for oranges, as Nature filters out impurities from the actual internal fruit, no matter how dirty it is on its skin. That’s because seeds must be protected for fertility and viability. Ain’t the Creation grand?

  6. Great service Dr. Everyone needs to forward this on to everyone in their address book.
    I commented on here a few months back about is very thing. Our Japanese friends told uis 11 years ago, never eat anything from China….nothing.
    A few years back, they found dry wall in pickled eggs sent to Hawaii.
    Same for visiting food markets in Chinatown in Honolulu. They have videos of rats crawling over food at night after the vegetable markets close.
    Also, never eat farmed fished, no matter their selling points. Even American farmed fish.
    Keep up the great work.

  7. Thank you, Dr. Eowyn, for this important post! And thanks to all the great commenters!

  9. I am an American who is writing this reply from China (Huizhou). I LOVE the food here. I wish I could eat this food when I am home in the USA. If it is meat, it was killed that day. If it is fish, it was swimming when I ordered it. Fruits and veggies are straight from the farm. The food is delicious and the people preparing and serving it are wonderful. This is Fresh food- I am sure if they received food from the other side of the earth (USA) they wouldn’t touch it. Think about it: what quality of food do you expect if it was shipped around the world? Western food police are silly and China-bashing is getting really old.

    • Then you are either a fool or a propagandist for the Communist Party. The Chinese don’t just poison the foods they export, they poison their own countrymen:
      * In 2004, hundreds of babies in China died from or suffered malnutrition from ingesting fake powdered milk that contained only 1-6% protein instead of the minimum national requirement of 10% protein.
      * Also in 2004, at last 6 men died of alcohol poisoning in China after drinking fake liquor made from industrial alcohol and rice wine.
      * In 2006, Greenpeace tested vegetables in two Hong Kong grocery stores and discovered that over 70% of their samples were covered in pesticide residue exceeding safe levels; some samples tested positive for illegal pesticides, such as DDT, HCH and Lindane. Nearly 80% of vegetables in these grocery stores originated from mainland China.
      * In 2008, an outbreak of kidney disease among Chinese babies occurred, due to baby formula contaminated by melamine. Six babies died and 294,000 were made sick by the tainted formula with 51,900 requiring hospitalization. The supplier of the milk, Sanlu Group, is a name brand and a major player in the industry in China. The company is said to have known of the problem for months, but claims the contaminant came from milk suppliers.
      * In 2009, duck meat sold as lamb had been marinated in goat or sheep urine to give the duck the smell and taste of lamb; most of the pork blood pudding in Chinese markets contained little actual blood, but was manufactured with formaldehyde, corn starch, industrial grade salt, and artificial food coloring.
      * In 2010 and ongoing, gutter oil — oil that has already been used and is then processed by cleaning and filtering — was/is resold as a cheaper alternative to normal cooking oil. The sources of gutter oil are restaurant fryers, sewers, and leftover or used oil sold by restaurants. A newer version of gutter oil uses discarded animal parts, animal fat, internal organs, and expired or otherwise low quality meat which is then cooked in large vats in order to extract the oil.
      * In 2013, the carcasses of over 15000 pigs were found drifting in Huangpu River, caused by a crack-down on illicit pig-trade. Local pork dealers had been buying up dead meat unfit for sale, processed it in illegal workshops, and then re-introduced the products into the legal market.
      *Also in 2013, China’s Ministry of Public Security released a press statement warning Shanghai consumers of lamb meat that actually was either rat, fox or mink meat; six workshops in Shaanxi province were shut down for producing fake beef by mixing pork with paraffin wax and industrial salts; cats slaughtered at a “black” slaughterhouse near Shanghai were sold as rabbit meat.
      *Also in 2013, Wenzhou police uncovered 10 underground mills that were using large amounts of chemical additives and coloring agents to clean out-of-date chicken drumsticks, wings and ducks’ heads prior re-selling them to public.
      *Most recently, in August 2013, rice tainted with unsafe levels of the toxic cancer-causing metal, cadmium, was found in southern China.

      China’s new national motto should be read, “GREED IS GOOD AT ALL COST AND WITH DISREGARD TO MORALS” China is a beast that soon will implode or expand its borders as to consume resources. Like the Borg from Star Trek Enterprise they are, ingesting all there be assimilating everything and leaving not but destruction. We should be mindfully aware that China had systematically destroyed the American (and other countries) manufacturing capabilities to the point where we could not defend our borders and ultimately our way of life. We could be their slaves of labor and or liquidating as a radical non-asset. I can’t believe our governing body has allowed this to promote to levels we may never recover from… We though can give thanks to the Reagan and Bush (both Sr. & Jr.) presidencies for the creation and maintaining of such treaties and favorite nation status. Pathetic!

  10. Reblogged this on "OUR WORLD".

  11. Thank you so much for posting this. It’s all so important. I live in the United Kingdom, but I am quite sure the same happens. I always check labels, and don’t buy meat anyway, but with the other products I shall be even more vigilant now. Your reply to John Anderson’s comment, BTW, is an education in itself. Thank you for that information, too.

    This is an absolute must read – including the comments section!

  13. What happened to the video on this articule? Wanted to show it to my disbelieving husband?

  14. Being Asian, I need my Nori fix. I can’t find any brand that’s not manufactured in either China of Korea and that’s checking dozens of labels.
    A lot of the brands with Japanese names get away with listing the distribution company’s country of origin but not the manufacturer’s. Is this legal ? Anyone out there know of any clean nori brands ?

    talk about the pot calling the kettle black, the us foods are laced with additives that are not that healthy, your meat is hardly organic and full of drugs, let us not get on to your genetic experiments with crops.Of Course No one dies of alcohol poisoning in the USA. As for animals being fed on human excrement well what is wrong with that, it has been going on for hundreds of years and is heathy enough. all bottom feeder fish live of the detritus of the ocean. Far more healthy than those coffee beans gone through a weasel, ,What you complain of is the poor processing. and it seems taht you are too lazy lto prepare food
    Yes chinese rice in some areas is dangerous and the poor in china suffer as all the goods mentioned were underpriced. Is this any different in the US? John anderson is right food is fesh and organic in China . you select your fish, your chicken , tutrtle and they are cooked fresh. As for vegetables another case of the pot calling the kettle black. you can get good orgaic vegetables in China if you buy form your local farmers but i accept in larger cities it is not always possible.

    • I totally agree that U.S. corporate manufactured food is full of additives, but I can do without your bogus moral equivalence, equating U.S. food with the outright poison in some Chinese food.
