Would you willingly eat a chicken nuggets processed in a country that has no intention of meeting U.S. food-safety standards? Most Americans likely wouldn't.

 

 

Hehehe. funny. from the country where you can't get meat without antibiotics, and the country with the highest amount of resistant bacteria in the world. precious.

Maybe you should actually read up on the process, and not from the extremist anti sites that make up stuff.

In other words, this food is gong to poison you so don't worry about it. I remember once we got some plywood from China for a project a customer wanted us to do and the smell of chemicals was so bad that none of us could stand being around it for more than a few seconds without our eyes watering. We had to glove up and mask up to even use it.  

There are many processed foods made right here in the USA that are rather 'toxic'. ;)

 What kind of drugs is the FDA on? Why on earth would they allow chicken to be imported from China? I hope someone wise orders an injunction against their decision for the safety of our country!

There are two possibilities here:

 

1) This is a trade dispute and is simply a way of employing protectionist measures against Chinese imports

2) China somehow has even lower food standards than the United States

 

Given the shockingly low food standards in the US I consider it more likely that this is a political move rather than there being any legitimate concerns about food safety. I mean we're talking about a country that feeds growth hormones and antibiotics to cattle, uses centrifuges and harsh chemicals to extract animal tissue from bones, blends chicken carcasses into meat paste and only inspects 6% of domestic food producers / 0.4% of foreign food producers. A country where the top food safety jobs are filled by former executives and lobbyists from Monsanto and other major businesses. A country where the political right has systematically undermined regulation to the point where it is completely ineffectual.

You can buy meat without antibiotics in the US. A lot of people don't care, which is why they have large medical bills.

Sure, the expensive markets that cater to the higher middle class and up may have it. or they simply don't say that it's full of anti biotics since it's pretty much in all the food given to those animals in the US. 

 

In any case, how sick they are isn't dependant on whether they eat beef with or without anti biotics anyway. i's this massive overuse of anti biotics that's causing a surge of resistance bacteria. these bacteria don't care what meat you eat.

From my experience, that is not true. You can find them in your local grocery store.
