More on foods to beware...learn your bar codes (if this message is true). I just pass this on since it looks legit and pix don't lie.
HERE ARE NO REGULATED LAWS FOR FOOD PROCESSED IN CHINA , HONG KONG , VIETNAM AND THAILAND !!
DANGEROUS IMPORTED FOODS
The whole world is scared of China made 'black hearted goods'. Can you differentiate which one is made in the USA , Philippines , Taiwan or China ? For your Information ... the first 3 digits of the barcode is the country code wherein the product was made.
Sample: all barcodes that start with 690 until 695 are all MADE IN CHINA.
471 is Made in Taiwan.
This is our human right to know, but the government and related department never educate the public, therefore we have to RESCUE ourselves. Nowadays, Chinese businessmen know that consumers do not prefer products 'made in china', so they don't show from which country it is made.
However, you may now refer to the barcode, remember if the first 3 digits is 690 to 695, then it is Made in China .
00 ~ 13 USA & CANADA
30 ~ 37 FRANCE

628 ~ Saudi-Arabien
629 ~ United Arab Emirates
740 ~ 745 - Central America
All 480 Codes are Made in the Philippines
Now read on below for specifics on goods from China to protect yourself, your family, and your friends.
This is sickening but it is an alert to read labels and always buy fresh when you can.
Have a taste for chicken? READ THIS
WATCH WHAT YOU BUY. ESPECIALLY HIGHLINER FISH PRODUCTS; all come from China, even though the box says 'product of Canada', it is from China and 'processed' in Canada, that is, the coating is added and packaged in Canada only! The fish are raised in pens using chemicals that are banned in Canada as cancer causing but legal in China . This was exposed on CBC TV's Marketplace.
This one will make you think before buying anything from China .
Well, are you enjoying seeing Chinese food popping up in your supermarket left and right? Have you noticed you can't buy a single package of fish that isn't made in China (or Vietnam )? Do you think your food from China is processed in a sanitary manner, and thus safe to eat? Take a look at this!!
These undercover enclosed pictures speak a thousand words. Avoid buying all processed food packaged in China. Anything goes! We just don't know what else is in those packages. Unlike in the U.S. and CANADA , China does not have laws regulating food processing.
Basically, do not buy any processed food from China , also Hong Kong , too. MANY companies are using a Hong Kong address to avoid this type of image reputation.
Early dawn, starts the day by riding around to collect dead chickens.
Total of 5 riders are hired by the boss to ride to farms to buy dead chickens.
A dead chicken cost 1 RMB and would be sold at 9 RMB after processing.
Storage for the dead chickens in the court yard.
Carcasses are thrown everywhere.
And on the floor....
Four employees start de-feathering the dead fowl after soaking in boiling water from a rusty wok.
Enduring the pungent odor, but sometime, it get so terrible that even the most experienced of the workers would puke.
Workers rush to get the chickens de-feathered.
A discarded bath tub is used to soak the bare skin dead chickens.... The contaminated water would have accelerated the decomposition process.
Wearing slippers walking among the chickens before the coloring processing.
After the color dye, its creepy to find that they are quite tenderized.
And now presenting the mouth watering Charcoal Roasted Chicken!
Do NOT buy food originating in China (or Vietnam or Thailand)! Take the time to read the labels and look for country of origin! STOP BUYING ANYTHING FROM CHINA . PERIOD!
