SO YOU LIKE CHOPSTICKS?
he next you go to a Chinese restaurant, you might want to consider this.... A Beijing factory recycled used chopsticks and sold up to 100,000 pairs a day without any form of disinfection, a newspaper said on Wednesday, the latest in a string of Chinese food and product safety scares.
Uh huh... Now in all honesty is obviously aimed at all chopstick makers in China... only some of them, actually, right now, pertaining to one chopstick maker.
Officials raided the factory and seized about half a million pairs of recycled disposable bamboo chopsticks and a packaging machine, the Beijing News said.
The owner, identified only by his surname Wu, said he had sold the recycled chopsticks for 0.04 yuan a pair and made an average of about 1,000 yuan ($130) a day.
Wu, who had no license to sell the goods, said he had sold 100,000 pairs a day when business was good.
On the lighter side.... In the latest in a series of tit-for-tat measures, China has accused the United States of exporting substandard soybean shipments to China and requested "effective measures" be taken. The U.S. shipping substandard soybean to China???? What is this world coming to... lol
