22 Tons of Fake Beef Seized in China

This really makes our stomachs churn.

This week, police in Xi’an province reported that they had found and seized more than 22 tons of fake beef at a local factory. Get this: the “beef” was actually made from pork (which is considerably cheaper than beef) that had been treated with chemicals including paraffin wax and industrial salts to make it look like it came from a cow. Shanghiist reports that the factory sold more than 1,500 kilos (3,000 pounds) of the fake beef to local markets at around 25 to 33 yuan ($4 or $5) per kilo. Six workshops that were producing the fake beef have been discovered and shut down.

This isn’t the first instance of fake meat being sold in China. In May of this year, Medical Daily reported that 904 people were arrested in China for “meat-related offenses” over three months at the beginning of 2013. Included in these arrests was one gang of meat crooks who made over 10 million yuan ($1.6 million) by selling rat, fox, and mink meat at markets. This makes us wonder what impostor foods we might be eating, which in turn makes us very, very uncomfortable.

          He didn’t say he doesn’t trust Chinese people. He said he doesn’t trust The Chinese. Some people say they don’t trust the Americans – does that make them racist? If so, against what race? You liberals can find racism anywhere you look, even if you have to fabricate it in your own head. And since you so easily find it, maybe it’s just a projection problem for you.

            what?????? robocop26 clearly implied the chinese people. not trusting does not make him racist. making a sweeping generalisation suggesting chinese (people) are unscrupulous is.

        • Steven Bingham

          Thats not a racial statement they are unscrupulous and their food standards are ridiculous the rest of the world has standards and China has to recognise this and fall in line accordingly.

          • jjackso

            China does not have standards as “high” as ours. That is why the profit margin is ridiculously large. Large enough to process chicken and ship back AND make your ipad!

          • kevin

            Generalisation that Chinese people are unscrupulous is clearly a statement targeting specifically the Chinese people.

            While it is true that there are certain industries/companies that do not follow the same principles the rest of the world do, does not make the population in general, untrustworthy.

          • Molly Long McCaig

            Not Chinese people, people in China! It is the country/govt that is the problem!

          • bogus

            True but the lack of trust is in product quality and content. Do you expect people to learn madarin and research individual Chinese companies to find out who can and cannot be trusted? Of course not, if in general Chinese products cannot be trusted, then obviously Chinese products will in general be avoided. If at some time in the future they gain a reputation for producing quality products rather than substandard than maybe that attitude will change. Same as the US have the reputation of ‘built by the cheapest bidder’ reputation for their products, along with refusing to meet the standards of may other countries or just faking their test results and accounting details, tax avoidance etc

      Are you serious? The USDA doesn’t give a fuck about you, me or any other U.S. citizen. These crooks go hand in hand with the FDA. They are just as full of it as any other gov’t agency.

    • GLhavefun

      It was the USDA who agreed to allow Chinese processing of American chicken.

  • AfricanTraveler1

    This is precisely why, when I go to market, I read the labels carefully and will not buy food that comes from China. And when Tyson ships chicken to China to be processed and then ships it back here to be sold, I will cease buying Tyson brand chicken. A lot of the salmon one sees in the frozen foods dept comes from China. Even when I feel like eating salmon and find no other salmon available, I will not buy salmon from China. When it concerns food, “Made in China” is becoming synonymous with “dirty, infected, fake, unhealthy and quite possibly lethal.”

            I think he’s just politely asking (with “please” and “thank you”) for a little more effort to be put into making posts readable. There was no judgment on anyone as a person there. It is more difficult to read a long post without punctuation. If we didn’t need punctuation, it would have died out a long time ago. People are free to ignore his request, and many do.

            “Cyan”, you get more extra radiation from living at higher elevation (see Denver, Colorado) than you would from Fukushima. Hell, simply taking a ride on a plane gives you a big spike of radiation, but I don’t see people freaking out about that.

            Most people don’t know ANYTHING about radiation, and you appear to be no exception.

          • adam

            most people don’t know ANYTHING about fukushima, and you appear to be no exception.

          • derek

            One doesn’t need to know that much about Fukushima to know that any contaminants leaking from the reactor are diluting into the Pacific Ocean which contains something on the order of 187 quintillion gallons of water. Also, you do know that they used to detonate atomic bombs in the Pacific, right? I suggest you do a little research into this, and also the specific types of radiation leaking from Fukushima, before contributing to the unnecessary hysteria over this tragic (yes) but not apocalyptic accident.

          • Michael Wong

            Unfortunately, trying to explain lines like “the poison is in the dosage” to people with an anti-scientific mindset is like trying to explain calculus to a dog. He may nod at you as if he understands, but really, he’s just thinking about taking a poop.

          • andrewjames

            Excellent way of explaining. So right you are.

          • yelram4life

            Really… don’t be a douche.

          • Dr. Mooney

            No dosage is safe. Prevent exposure as much as possible because no dosage is safe. What they are getting at is whats going on in Fukushima is definitely bad so don’t say that riding in an airplane is more harmful than whats happening in Fukushima because it’s not. The incident there is being downplayed and any type of leakage into the ocean is causing harmful effects.

          • Dave

            No one has the slightest clue as to what dosage is safe. It all does some damage.. thats the nature of the beast. BUT their seems no doubt that current levels are pretty damn conservative. We certainly can cope with decent amounts of ionizing radiation with out much in the way of issues. The death from weird cancers from survivors of Hiroshima is pretty damn close to normal rates.

          • Michael Wong

            It’s utterly absurd to say “no dosage is safe”, and it’s a fine example of the kind of unscientific thinking that characterizes alarmist propaganda on this subject. There are microscopic levels of arsenic in your drinking water; why aren’t you freaking out about that? And why are you so certain that Fukushima gives you more radiation than riding in an airplane, without bothering to evaluate the dosage?

          • adam

            you know what’s funny, I actually do mind the arsenic and fluoride in my drinking water, so I don’t drink it. It’s not absurd to say ‘no dosage is safe’. Just because we can tolerate levels of radiation doesn’t mean we should do so voluntarily. we can also tolerate some tornados….are those safe? the word safe does not equal ‘wont kill you’. it describes whether or not it causes loss or harm, and radiation does, in any dose.

          • chz_man

            you seem to like to use specific wording so, how about this. NO AMOUNT OF RADIATION IS SAFE. PERIOD! however, there are levels that the government(s) have deemed to be “acceptable” in order to remove any liability for the horrible practices each government has committed over the years.
            Arsenic is in apple juice and drinking water, People are finding that the “safe” limits you refer too, ARE NOT SAFE! The mortality rates and cancer rates are clear indicators of such. I repeat, NO AMOUNT OF RADIATION IS SAFE.
            In conclusion, Michael Wong is WRONG!

          • JonFraudCarry

            “No dosage is safe”
            You have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. We are continuously bathed in low-level radioactivity. As has been true for the entire history of the planet.

          • adam

            and the fact that you think this is safe……….as humans bathed in low level radioactivity, with more diseases than ever before, with higher infant mortality rate, lower birth rates, sterilization rates, autism and fibromyalgia spikes, cancer epidemics….yea…just go ahead and think that radiation is safe. think that when little pieces of toxic particles collect in your body for 30 or 50 years, they don’t cause you any problems….keep thinking that. it’s sound.

          • Michael Wong

            There was low-level radioactivity on our planet before there were humans. Stop being an ignoramus.

            PS. I love the way you tie every health problem to infinitesimal changes in radiation dosage, and not at all to the incredibly unprecedented level of chemical additives in our diet. Genius!

            Fukushima is the largest nuclear disaster in history, and it has been leaking into the ocean nonstop for over 2 years. the magnitude of this incident still has not even been established. officials do not know whether the worst part is past or still to come. you can argue dilution all you want, but the fact the remains. Fish will be contaminated at unprecedented levels. Sure, radiation in small levels are non-lethal, but there really are no ‘safe amount of radiation’ … all radiation is dangerous. there is an amount that our bodies can tolerate, but less radiation is always going to be safer than more radiation no matter how much you dilute it.

          • Michael Wong

            Precisely what makes you think there is no such thing as a safe amount of radiation? There is a natural background level of radiation in our environment. Uranium occurs naturally; it’s the reason why coal-burning power plants actually emit more radiation than Fukushima: because they burn hundreds of thousands of tons of coal every year and there is trace uranium in the coal.

            You don’t seem to understand that there is no such thing as a radiation-free universe. There was radiation in our world before there was life.

          • Tao

            This thread is so goddamn funny. Especially since you’re right. I cannot call myself an expert on radiation, but it didn’t take me more than five minutes of research, tops, to realize there was no actual problem in the Pacific, as far as radiation goes, and it’s little more than alarmist conspiracy for idiots to freak out about, as they love to do, so they have something new to bitch about on their Facebook wall or whatever.

            This brings to mind that famous Yale math professor, Tom Lehrer. In one of his tunes, there’s a line, “Without that data, yo’ chatta’ don’t matta.” Don’t see much data in the discourse.

            Feel free to use me as a reference. My cancer was irradiated a couple of years ago. My wife’s breast cancer was irradiated 15+ years ago. If no level is safe then we must be dead. And if so, would you ask your critics if they know why we still have to pay up on April 15th?

            I’m not an ichthyologist, but I seem to recall that the five commercial species of Pacific salmon are true salmonidae. That is, Atlantic, Scottish, i.e. non-Pacific “salmon” are, by definition, trout. Not that I’m against trout. Except if it glows in the dark.

      too bad the U.S. is now allowing chicken to be shipped out to China for processing and then shipped back to the U.S. for consumption and they are not required to label it that way. I am so sick of everything being about money!

      • Tippy

        We’re going to raise the chicken, slaughter the chicken, send it to CHINA to cut it up & package it, and then they will send it back to us to sell in grocery stores?

        • Chris

          We totally are!!!

          He picked fights with merchants
          He had daddy issues and therefore stated that his imaginary dad was the father of all mankind…
          He tricked Judas into suicide
          He was a hypocrite because first he said that you have to love your enemy and all deserve love, but then on the other hand he said that all who is baptised will go to heaven and all the others to hell.
          A Canaanite woman asked him to help her daughter because she apparently was possessed. He didn’t even look at her because he said he was sent here for the benefit of the children of Israel.
          He was a thief also: Matthew 8:28-34: He steals an entire herd of pigs and kills them all.
          He even loved sadism: He said that if your eye caused sin, then you should gouge it out and throw it away.
          He even was an emotional nut case: One day he was hungry and went to a tree to eat fruit. Upon arrival there was no fruit, only leaves. Jezus said tot the tree: ‘May no-one ever eat fruit from you again.

          etc. etc.

          So yes, we are much much better than him!

          • Bernard

            did not exist?? there are more texts outside of the bible that make account of the life of Jesus than there are in it. Non-religious texts from scholars of that time that make plenty of reference to his life and works. What you choose to do with that info and how you warp it is up to you, but don’t make uneducated statements. Most atheists don’t even deny his existence. Certainly hope you dont translate everything you read so literally. Research the meaning of “Allegorical Biblical Interpretation” and maybe you will understand things a little better. Amazing how so many people live their lives “poised to strike” at anything to do with Christianity. They look for the tiniest gaps to have a go. Live and let live – it takes all sorts to make a world. I certainly dont spend my time lashing out at athiests and other religions – I have better things to do with my time. I have friends from all walks who respect my views – it just makes for interesting conversations, even though we dont agree on everything.

          If Jesus was real he was a vegan… Dumbass. Jesus is just another lie told to us.

        • Alana Linsay Stevenson

          There is actually no proof at all that Jesus ate meat – other than a few references to fish which actually are not found in non-canonical gospels (Marcus, that means gospels and accounts of Jesus not put into the bible – Look up Council of Nicea). Learn your history, which means you have to read, question, be open for knowledge and the truth. The earliest Christians were Ebionites and Essenes. Jesus was a Nazarene/Essene. John the Baptist was an Essene. Ebionites/Nazarenes/Essenes were vegetarian. In non-canonical gospels, there is no reference to ‘fish’ (and there is an argument that it was thrown in by the Greeks). Bread is always present in all accounts, fish only sometimes. In non-canonical accounts, Jesus eats bread and sometimes olive — not fish. Look up Eusebius and Epiphanius. Jesus’ brother, James, was a vegetarian — “James the Just” — he was put in charge of the Jerusalem Church — chosen by Jesus. James told the gentiles (meaning – you) to not eat slaughtered animals — read Acts 15:20, Acts15: 28-29, Acts 21:25 – So saying “Jesus ate meat. u saying u better than Jesus?” is just beyond dumb, esp since in one of the accounts, Jesus was already dead or a ‘ghost’ when he ate fish. Jesus was a Jew. It is hugely doubtful he ate pigs, or cows. Most ascetics were/are vegan/vegetarian — regardless of their religion — throughout history. You do realize MLK’s son and wife are vegetarian — right? I guess they’re better than Jesus too then. Or read 1 Corinthians 8:13

          • Lars

            Who cares if Jesus ate meat or not? He was some dude who either chose to eat meat or not. It should haver absolutely no influence on whether you eat meat or not. You have your personal reasons for doing things, but those reasons should never be simply because some dude did the same.

          • Alana Linsay Stevenson

            Why are you replying to me and not to Guest? I was responding to someone else. I was a complete vegetarian long before I read the NT and Jesus eating or not eating ‘meat’ had and has absolutely nothing to do with my diet. However, people seem to rush to state that Jesus ate meat as if to condone the practice – they don’t seem to even read the NT or bible except for Genesis 1 – when there is no indication other than a few inconsistent references to Jesus eating ‘fish’ as a ghost and feeding fish and bread to the masses. In other sources and noncanonical gospels there is no reference to fish, but always bread and sometimes olives. Therefore people who use Jesus as an argument to condone meat eating are really shooting from the hip. Reading Acts alone shows there was a strong stance against meat-eating amongst Jewish Christians. James specifically stated multiple times to gentiles they are not to eat strangled animals or consume blood.

        • Marcus Darrell Coleman

          wow look at the debate i started… i wasnt talkin about jesus in the biblical sense, but in the actual historical sense simply meanin they ate sheep, goat, and fish (last time i checked fish dont perform photosynthesis so its a meat)

          • adam

            ohhhh jesus in the historical sense. in that case it makes it easy. jesus in the ‘historical’ sense has its place in mythology, just like zeus and medusa.

          • bevan

            And agreed. Someone who talks sense.

          • Bernard

            hmmm…best do some homework before making statements like that. not saying you have to follow Jesus or have anything to do with christianity, but the life and teachings of jesus are documented outside of the bible to. The well respected Roman historian Tacitus makes account of the execution of Jesus – this was a historian who actually viewed christianity as a mischevious superstition – a man who would never have lied about something he did not believe in, especially for fear of his reputation. Recorded history supports him – but wether or not he was who he claimed to be is another matter.

          yes – Jesus ate meat 2000 yrs ago, when there were less than 500 chemicals known to man, now there are mega amounts of disease, and a billion chemicals, if you note history, before man ate meat, man lived nearly 1000 years, and grew to over 12 ft tall.

          • Melanoma

            The pruritans were disappointed with Catholic Church, that´s way gone to USA and founded many sects of Christianity, but in the Bible described, in the end of the World, come many false Prophets, the doctrine as true but misleading. I never judge them, but they are exist as to be.
            No one say, don´t eat that and that, The rule was only for Jews in old Testament, but if some one believe in Jesus, they should be born in new life with Jesus, not with many complicated rule in this world , their life and false interpretation of Bible.

      and on top of everything you just said, if you buy frozen fish from China, try this; defrost it, drain it, and then weigh it.

Before you eat any Tilapia…ask them where it was “Farm raised” because it’s not local, or even from the US….and please stay away from it.

    Buy locally grown, organic meats or you don’t know what your getting. There are lots of reasons not to buy ANYTHING made in China, especially the government’s stand regarding Tibetans and Tibetan Buddhism. Hard to do, I know, but your choices about how you spend your dollars is the ony thing that will make a difference. The Chinese government and modern day culture is unscrupulous and corrupt – no integrity. By refusing to line their pockets, you will benefit in many ways.

    Anything made in China is questionable. Food and household products. I recently bought a lid knob made in China, i paid 4.69 for a cheap plastic knob (which is fine) and a screw to replace the knob on my favorite lid that broke after a number of years of heavy use. Within a couple of washes, i notice the screw rusted. I don’t know about the Chinese, but i do care about not having rust in my food … so i removed the screw and in the process broke the knob as well … why? cheap plastic!! I have many many horror stories with China made items, and i could spend hours and hours telling them.

    Some how it doesn’t make sense to me to send our food to another country be it China or any where else and have it sent back to us. They don’t like us dumb asses. Don’t take our food out of our country and hope they don’t do anything to it. Thats just stupid.

  • europhobic

    Well, I obviously avoid Chinese food but also American food. For example, American meat manufacturers are allowed to use meat conservants that are known to cause cancer and banned in Europe and a lot of other countries. So it’s a pot, kettle, black situation a bit. Trouble is that the US is forcing its produce onto other markets with the threat of WTO.

  • mag

    some folk still eat food from China. not us or our dogs though.

  • DURISSUS

    Looks like local farmers markets are really going to skyrocket!

  • DURISSUS

    And on another front…perhaps this is a way to keep those “pesky illegal immigrants” from coming into the U.S. since they are the primary workers at many poultry processing plants! Government ploy? But seriously, how “cost effective” can it be to ship chickens overseas to be cut up, and then shipped back? And we’re also to assume what they send back is really chicken? This is one of the more crazy things I’ve read recently.

    • AfricanTraveler1

      It can be cheaper to ship the chickens to China, have people do the work there, and ship it back to the USA than to have Americ
      an workers do it here. One thing you can trust business to do — opt for the cheapest method of accomplishing something. Make sure you don’t buy Tyson chicken any more.

  • TooMuch

    Please tell me why the hell do they send our meat ALL THE WAY to freaking China to be packaged??? Then they ship it back to America??? Do we not have any meat packaging plants in the United States? Absurd!

    • AfricanTraveler1

      The answer is simple. Labor costs are so low that it makes the sum of all costs involved to be lower than they would be if American workers did the work here.

  • CHINOY

    FUCK YOU CHINA

    I hate that most people commenting on this are considerably older than me, and arguing about things that have nothing to do with the article….

    • blue_strat

      it’s called free speech and freedom of expression. perhaps you’ve heard of the concepts? newsflash, kid … you know most of the things young people are taught growing up like … judging everyone by their character and not by their heritage, treat those as you want to be treated, etc, etc, etc?? well, the reality of it is, like it or not, most of that goes out the window once you reach adulthood. sad, but true. it’s a cruel, kill or be killed world we live in … get used to it.

    Oh this is only sad for people who are allergic to pork and they are eating it thinking it is beef! They should make beef more cheaper and the crooks will stop this nonsense! What other fake foods are we eating?

  • Aww Man

    Check where Mcdonald’s get their food from? question: is your meat real or fake?: “Despite all those myths out there, none of our meat is fake! McDonald’s uses only 100% USDA-inspected beef from real beef cattle to make our burger patties. Our chicken is 100% USDA-inspected real chicken, supplied by industry leaders like Tyson Foods and Keystone Foods, and the same high standards apply to our 100% pork.” ^^ I see Tyson’s foods in this quote.BYE MCDONALD’S!

    This isn’t news. Real news headline that would truly shock me would be if police find something in china that is pure and genuine.

    THESE CHINESE WITH DOWN-SYNDROME DID IT AGAIN! NOT JUST VICTIMIZING AND INFECTING OTHER PEOPLE BUT THEIR COUNTRYMEN AS WELL! VERY PATHETIC! CHINA SHOULD BE BANNED FROM EXPORTING THEIR PRODUCTS BECAUSE THEY MANUFACTURE “GOOD FOR NOTHING” ITEMS!! CHINA IS ALSO THE NUMBER ONE MANUFACTURER AND DISTRIBUTOR OF DRUGS LIKE METAMPHETAMINE AND COCCAINE. SO, DO YOU THINK YOU STILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO EXIST IN THIS PLANET? THE HELL YOU DON’T! IN THE DAYS AND MONTHS TO COME WE CAN STILL EXPECT NEWER EVIL CONCOCTIONS FROM YOU MOTHER F*CKERS! ROT IN HELL YOU DEMONS!

    Look in Roosevelt Field Mall Food Court. The small restaurant vendor displays a side of beef but when your meal comes it is NOT beef! When confronted about it the woman at the counter said that it was “Booshie Beef” That must be her codename for some other kind of meat that is certainly NOT beef. nickname for

    All I can say is – Melamime in Baby Formula!!! If the chinese don’t give a fuck about killing their own babies, then why would they give a fuck about selling fake/poisoned food to foriegners!!

  • Kelvin

    Well, in China you eat literally anything chewable, so as long as you keep it within your boundaries, the rest of the world has no problems with you. After all, that’s what Chinese people are well known for worldwide…..CROOKEDNESS!!!!

  • Monica Carroll

    People wake up! Your being lied to here in the US too! Those who allegedly regulate our food are in fact the companies who make it. Question everything, China we all know has zero credibility but look closer at our companies. I read one about Tyson, please, they have been poisoning us for years. Dig deeper people, the truth is all over the Internet. The solution for now is buy Organic GMO free and not organic from other countries. Check out “meet your meat” on Utube. Narrated by Alec Bladwin. 3 minutes. That’s what your eating!

  • David

    “This makes us wonder what impostor foods we might be eating, which in turn makes us very, very uncomfortable.” Then don’t go to China lol. This is a market of 1.3 Billion people, none of these numbers seem very high. I visited Chine three times (I am a Canadian), ate duck head, chicken feet, some things eye, something where I was told, “It’s OK, you can eat the head,” and a few other interesting items. This story isn’t news.

    I really hope they didn’t have to simply throw away 22 tons of meat. That would be the real tragedy here.

Know your farmer / know where your food comes from has never been more important advice.

    Hi all. I have been very sick from eating a Mac Donalds burger in GZ. The patty blocked up my tummy and the “patty” did not digest at all when I passed it 2 days later… I know for sure that it was not even meat… Paper, wood and chemicals I believe… The problem is that in China I have no means taking action… I am still suffering and it’s day 6…

  • KevinFromNYC

    When a certain political party says that we need to cut government, what they are saying is we need to cut the number of food inspectors who protect our food. The crap which comes in from foreign countries are not being inspected. Do you think they care about what they send to us?

    By 2050, it will take 100 billion land animals to provide the world’s population with meat, dairy, eggs and leather goods. Maintaining this herd will take a huge, potentially unsustainable toll on the planet. What if there were a different way? In this eye-opening talk, tissue engineering advocate Andras Forgacs argues that biofabricating meat and leather is a civilized way to move past killing animals for hamburgers and handbags. Yep may not sustainable (assuming that we don’t do something stupid and cull ourselves before that).

    I find this gross. That said, for those that think they are safe in the U.S., think again. Places like restaurants do this. I mean the chicken nuggets are made of a pink, processed substance and most eat it up. Soy is evil and passed as good. Meat is raised in a bad environment. I know a person that made food for animals. He said they threw whatever in there but no mention on the bad. That is likely not limited to dogs, and we can’t check everything.
