Do you have any Chinese rice noodles or other foods in your kitchen? Better read this…
Chinese food producers are turning out over a million pounds of tainted rice noodles a day and no one can say how long it’s been happening. Chinese authorities say it’s all being locally used, but hey, they said there was no export of melamine tainted milk products either and we know how well that turned out.
The latest stories detail how sulphur dioxide and other substances are being added to rotten rice to stretch a pound of rice into three pounds of noodles.
The rice noodles are just the latest food scandal from the People’s Republic of China. Last week it was bleached mushrooms, tainted red wine, fake tofu and dyed oranges.
So… do you have any Chinese food products on the shelf? Why take the chance with your family when these stories keep coming?
