Chopped cardboard, softened with an industrial chemical and flavored with fatty pork and powdered seasoning, is a main ingredient in batches of steamed buns sold in one Beijing neighborhood, state television said.

No "Chinese food" you eat in this country is remotely related to anything eaten in China.

I've never been a huge fan of Chinese food anyway and Isaac just kind of ruined it for me with those grotesque rat food shots! I can't get rid of those mental images. Thanks IS by the way!:p

Apparently they ain't too excited about it over there in China either..

Execution underscores concern over 'Made in China'

Quote:

BEIJING, China (AP) -- China executed the former head of its food and drug watchdog for approving untested medicine for cash, a show of Beijing's seriousness about product safety, while officials announced moves Tuesday to safeguard food at next summer's Olympic Games.

During Zheng Xiaoyu's tenure as head of the State Food and Drug Administration from 1997 to 2006, the agency approved six medicines that turned out to be fake, and some drug-makers used falsified documents to apply for approvals, according to state media reports Tuesday. One antibiotic caused the deaths of at least 10 people.

Wow imagine if we executed our government officials when they don't do a good job. There wouldn't be many left! :D

Perhaps he was just making garlic wine!! garlic isn't as soft as grapes are so he needed shoes. Simple explanation. :D
