USDA Okays Shipping Chicken From U.S. To China For Processing

July 13, 2015 1 min read

As if you needed one more unsettling reason to become a vegan! The U.S. Department Of Agriculture (USDA) will allow U.S. chickens to be shipped to China for processing before it gets shipped back to the U.S. for y'all to eat. This sounds like a brilliant idea after recent revelations about China's food safety standards! The best part? There are no labeling requirements so you won't even know which brands are processed in China! But don't worry, this is already happening with some U.S. seafood. According to the Seattle Times, some domestically caught Pacific salmon and Dungeness crab is being shipped to China, processed and sent back. Why? "Significant cost savings." In the United States, poultry processors are paid around $11 an hour. There are lots of reports circulating that in China, they earn $1 to $2 an hour. Adds up, I'm sure. I don't care how much money this saves, this is insane! In a world that is dying because of environmental pollutants, we're going to start moving stuff great distances for no real reason? I say, buy local, buy fresh. If you didn't think it was a good idea before, I bet you do now! Source: Eat Local Grown Do you follow us on Instagram?
