Beware of these foods from China

In 2009, spurred by the worst bout of food poisoning he’d ever experienced from consuming a bowl of ice cream on a hot day in Shanghai, China, then-trade consultant Mitchell Weinberg created New York-based Inscatech — a global network of food spies who scour supply chains around the world hunting for evidence of food industry fraud and malpractice.

In the eight years since he founded  Inscatech, Weinberg identified China as an epicenter of food fraud, where baby formula was laced with melamine and rat meat was sold as lamb. He said: “Statistically we’re uncovering fraud about 70 percent of the time, but in China it’s very close to 100 percent. It’s pervasive, it’s across food groups, and it’s anything you can possibly imagine.” (Independent)

Isabelle Z. reports for Natural News, Nov. 30, 2018, that a lot of food sold throughout the world comes from China, but the standards continue to leave much to be desired because Chinese food regulations are notoriously lax, and widespread government corruption means that the few regulations they do have are rarely upheld.

Below is a list of foods from China we should shun:

  1. Fish: China’s rivers and lakes are heavily polluted. More than half of the tilapia and cod that are sold in the U.S. were grown on a Chinese fish farm, and it’s not uncommon to find heavy metals like lead or mercury in those fish.
  2. Rice: A lot of the rice sold in North America comes from China. But China has been exporting “plastic rice” that is little more than a mix of resin and potato.
  3. Garlic: A third of the garlic sold in the U.S. originate from China, which has been found to be laced with methyl bromide and other pesticides.
  4. Apple juice: Chinese apple juice was singled out by the Alternative Daily for several reasons: (1) The U.S. government had restricted the import of apples from China for a time, which indicates major problems; (2) A few years ago, U.S. health officials discovered that apple juice imported from China contained antifreeze; (3) Chinese soil is laced with toxins.
  5. Green peas: Counterfeit green peas from China have been found which are made using sodium metabisulfite, soy, a green dye, and small amounts of real green peas.
  6. Mushrooms: Chinese mushrooms have prompted safety concerns around the world because formaldehyde and sulfur dioxide are added to make the mushrooms appear fresher. Read labels carefully: as much as a third of the processed mushrooms that are consumed in America originate in China.

Antifreeze in apple juice. Plastic rice, counterfeit peas. Nice. I don’t understand why “we” would feel the need to buy food from China. We produce plenty of food here. Peas are easy enough to grow. At least half of the apples grown in orchards here go to waste. The growers can’t find anyone to pick them, it’s labor-intensive and therefore too close to actual work. I know, the Odor has decided that the brutally repressive, atheistic, state-capitalist model of China Inc. will be ascendant, to fill the vacuum left by the destruction of Western Christian Civilization. So buy their plastic… Read more »

@William,
One of my main points of exposing the insane Liberal DemocRat Watermelons as frauds, besides immigration, is Clinton & the Green Fraud Al Gore’s “NAFTA” & “WTO” which enabled US corporations to dodge US environmental laws (and our labor, quality control, and taxes) pollute with impunity and ship the toxic slave labor made junk back here tax free!

The Orwellian NAFTA that has absolutely nothing to do with “free trade”. And the US corporations that magically transformed themselves into “global entities”. Words are important, they have power. I tried to like your comment but the like-o-meter is broken again

Yes to all, but we don’t do such a hot job of quality assurance either. Before Clinton we didn’t buy much from China. After Clinton (AC) we bought EVERYTHING from them. The list is endless. The plastic toys are poisonous. The pet food, clothing, food, even the stains and preservatives they put on their cheap “you build” furniture are toxic. A few years ago they were showing people with severe burns to their feet from wearing thongs made in China. China is a “communist country”. Without getting into the whole truth about both systems having the same goals, they do,… Read more »

It’s time to start calling it Red China again, like in the old days. China was a joke, bumbling centrally planned Inefficiency According to Plan. The Top Ten in China had soulful tunes like, “Resolutely Strive to Surpass Production Quotas at the Peoples’ Diesel Truck Assembly Factory Number 17”. A preview of hell is right

“Resolutely Strive to Surpass Production Quotas at the Peoples’ Diesel Truck Assembly Factory Number 17”. I’ll give it a nine. It has a catchy tune and you can dance to it. This one always did chaff my hide. I guess people have forgotten about Chairman Mao. Given their love of control I can see why the lefties love it so much. I find it interesting that they “hate” Russia, who is no longer a communist state, and adore China, who is. Oh, I remember. Putin won’t be their butt-boy and China greases their palms. We live in a twisted world.

We used to have copies of his Little Red Book during that massive psy-op known as the Counterculture. We were down with the Chinese peasants: Chairman Mao save us from capitalist running dogs who bring only sadness to China!

Thank you for this information, Dr. Eowyn. I had no idea about this.

A few years back thousands of US cats & dogs were poisoned by plastic in the pet food made in China. Be very careful in your food choices for your self and your pets.

U.S. approves purchase of Smithfield (by Communist China)

Ever since it was originally reported that Smithfields had sold to the Chinese–I quit purchasing their brand name. It is rather shocking to read that they also label under several other brands, such as Armour. I must admit, after reading the article, I was forced to take some Ondansetron (for nausea or vomiting) in order to quell the distress in my stomach. It really sickens me to know that whether the Chinese are making their own people sick by feeding them poisons, or they are foisting off tainted food products to the rest of the world–it really is a sick… Read more »

Auntie, you are wise to avoid the Chinese food. To them the dollar is God and that is what this is all about. My dear Japanese friend told me about 15 years ago, never eat anything fresh, frozen or canned from China, it can harm you. I remember when they were shipping pickled eggs to Hawaii and they found out they contained drywall. I would never eat any fish from a farm anywhere these days. You don’t even want to know what they feed them. And their fresh foods, well, let’s say the workers use the same areas to use… Read more »

If you look closely at your prescription medications you will no doubt find most of them are made in China. They pay about $.30/hr. for workers. It’s a place where all the workers are running other scams to survive.

The only concern of these corporations is cheap labor.

I rarely eat seafood to begin with, which for me, comes mostly from China, or somewhere along the Pacific.

Fukushima is the other reason, with God knows how much radiation poisoning is present in the fish.

If you eat enough canned tuna you can save hundreds on night light bills.

Good thing I stopped a while back – otherwise I’d never get any sleep with the lights constantly on!

I do miss eating tuna on occasion, though ??

I love the stuff but I haven’t eaten any since the Japanese Chernobyl.

The fact is if you are living on the west coast you have been breathing in and drinking cesium. My daughter had her children’s blood tested about a year and a half after Fukushima, and though they never touch fish, both her kids had radioactive stuff in their blood that could have only come from the Fukushima. If I recall correctly it was cesium. So we are breathing it and drinking it as all the rainwater that comes in through the pacific is loaded with it too. I didn’t eat any fish either for years, but I have kind of… Read more »

Remember Jackie, while Fukishima was leaking radiation into our ecosystem, NATO & world leaders were bombing secular Libya (and helping their Islamic Fundamentalist terrorist mercs just like they did in Bosnia, Kosovo, Syria), which was much more important to (((Them))) than helping stop the nuclear poisoning of our planet.
Libya than became the launching pad for the (K)alergi Plan invasion of Europe to destroy it.

I knew about the rice years ago and checked my source from Sam’s Club since I have 16 buckets of rice stored in one room…it’s grown in Arkansas.

Thank you for this most informative article. I have had to go to the E.R. three times for food poisoning in my life (the last time was over 20 years ago), and the last time I almost died. Let me tell you, food poisoning is a terrible thing to endure, let alone die from. (It has been speculated that U.S. President Harding died from it). Well, the U.S. used to have standards, until we sold out, I guess. Dr. Ted Broer and Mike Adams the Health Ranger have warned against processed foods, but, as time is precious for me and… Read more »
