Chinese companies mass producing fake rice out of plastic…

Posted on 16 February 2011

… well, that’s what Natural News has reported. Like a previous story about fake eggs being produced in China, we don’t know if it’s true, but it’s still worth reading. Check by yourselves:

“According to a report in the Korean-languageWeekly Hong Kong, the manufacturers are blending potatoes, sweet potatoes, and plastic industrial resin to produce the imitation rice. A report inVery Vietnam states that an official from the Chinese Restaurant Association has announced that eating three bowls of this fake rice is the equivalent of eating an entire plastic bag. Consuming such plastic material is obviously a serious health hazard, and officials are allegedly gearing up to conduct an investigation into the factories accused of producing the phony rice.”

The article rightly recalls that this “scandal is not a surprise when considering China’s long legacy food problems, including the 2008 melamine-tainted milk incident where roughly 300,000 people were injured and at least six infants died as a result of being poisoned by the toxic chemical”..

We leave to you to decide whether this story of the fake rice is true or not…
