Walmart's Latest Chinese Food Scandal: Diluting Ass With Fox

Tyler Durden's picture





 

"We are deeply sorry for this whole affair," said Wal-Mart's China president after the world's largest retailer recalled donkey meat sold at some outlets in China after tests showed the product contained the DNA of other animals - including fox. "It is a deep lesson (for us) that we need to continue to increase investment in supplier management," repeat-offender Wal-Mart added as Reuters reports the tainted "five-spice" donkey meat may mean "wealthy shoppers will start to lose the trust [in Wal-Mart's brand] they had before." Donkey meat is a popular snack in some areas of China, but as one bemused customer noted, oddly, "Isn't fox meat more expensive than donkey meat anyway?"

 

Via Reuters,

Wal-Mart Stores Inc, the world's largest retailer, has recalled donkey meat sold at some outlets in China after tests showed the product contained the DNA of other animals, the U.S. company said.

 

Wal-Mart will reimburse customers who bought the tainted "Five Spice" donkey meat and is helping local food and industry agencies in eastern Shandong province investigate its Chinese supplier, it said late on Wednesday in official posts on China's Twitter-like Weibo. The Shandong Food and Drug Administration earlier said the product contained fox meat.

 

The scandal could dent Wal-Mart's reputation for quality in China's $1 trillion food and grocery market where it plans to open 110 new stores in the next few years.

 

...

 

This is another hit on Wal-Mart's brand, meaning wealthy shoppers will start to lose the trust they had before," said Shaun Rein, Shanghai-based managing director of China Market Research (CMR) Group. CMR estimates Wal-Mart's market share fell from 7.5 percent to 5.2 percent over the last three years.

 

Donkey meat is a popular snack in some areas of China

 

...

 

"We are deeply sorry for this whole affair," said Wal-Mart's China president and CEO, Greg Foran. "It is a deep lesson (for us) that we need to continue to increase investment in supplier management."

 

The U.S. retailer has had a troubled past in China. In 2011, China fined Wal-Mart, along with Carrefour, a combined 9.5 million yuan ($1.57 million) for manipulating product prices. Wal-Mart was also fined that year in China for selling duck meat past its expiry date.

 

...

 

"Isn't fox meat more expensive than donkey meat anyway?" asked one bemused user.

If you didn't raise it, butcher it, and cook it, then you don't really know what it is that you are eating.

Exactly ... gather up any dead thing you can find, add five spices to cover up the taste, call it donkey, and the Chinese will eat it.

Probably the five-spice donkey has included some random-burger since the Song dynasty, but prior to bourgeois DNA testing, no one was the wiser.

This is why flu viruses can recombine so readily to create nascent lethal forms potentially causing millions of deaths worldwide. Vaccines against these strains probably won't be effective until after many have died. So many different animals living in unsanitary conditions makes for viral heaven. Look for the next world pandemic to originate in this region.

So, was it the tiny Rib-eye steaks that finally tipped them off?  Good thing they didn't go with squirrel or it would have been spotted right away. Best to keep fox meat in the hamburger hopper with the lemurs and cats.

And I'll eat a dogs eye (as they're known down here) any day.

I lived for a while in a rural agricultural area of a 3rd world country.  About every six months a large truck from a meat processor would come through buying any animal that could be proded up the ramp.  The sausage from the company was surprisingly tasty.

Walmart is having the same effect on the US agricultural system and helping to destroy it just as it did with US-based manufacturing in the ever relentless pursuit of greater economies of scale.

Given that they now have over 20% of the market share of US groceries (did that in less than 15 years) and climbing any policy they put in place will have dramatic effects on downstream food production.  One of the things you are seeing as a result is more and more importation of food from abroad into the US as a result and it is only a matter of time before you see processed pork and chicken from China imported into the US. 

No single company or individual has done more to destroy US economy and brought more misery than Walmart.  It really is evil.

Anyone who buys any meat product at WalMart is nuts especially any kind of meat product that is a mixture of components including hamburger and sausage.  In general, anyoe who buys those products from a US supermaket or a large commerical brand is just asking for trouble.   

There is a reason that the meat at Walmart is especially red (dye they constantly inject so it wouldn't be either a light/dark grey depending upon the cut of meat and its age).  Plus they also use filler byproduct in a ton of products or carry brands that do.  Also have a nasty history and some fines to boot of using an ammonia mix to wash down the meat to remove the rotting smell & keep it on the shelves.

Funny thing is just how absolutely little/nothing people know about the meat they eat.  I am not a vegeterian/vegan and people should be able to eat what they want but there is very little red meat that I would purchase and/or eat from a major US supermarket or commerical brand. 

People think that makes me a 'snob' but then I tell them why I don't (besides the health reasons) and it has changed several friends/family members eating habits. 

Ditto purchasing a burger from any fast food chain.  Just order a cheeseburger from McDonald's next time, wait for it cool, and look at it closely.  It doesn't even remotely look like hamburger that comes out of grinder should.  If you let it sit out, it doesn't grow bacteria/mold on it either nearly as quickly as an actual 100% beef product should.  Horrifying really. 

A highs school friend in college who was in agri science at University of Delaware broke down a Big Mac once and there were definitely products & chemicals in there beyond meat filler too.  Even the biochem professor he had was horrified.

Alright, I'm not a warmonger, but I would totally be down with nuking these places from orbit:

 

his squat concrete building was once a chicken coop, but now it's part of a farm with an entirely different kind of livestock — millions of cockroaches.

Inside, squirming masses of the reddish-brown insects dart between sheets of corrugated metal and egg cartons that have been tied together to provide the kind of dark hiding places they favor.

...

The 43-year-old businessman is the largest cockroach producer in China (and thus probably in the world), with six farms populated by an estimated 10 million cockroaches. He sells them to producers of Asian medicine and to cosmetic companies that value the insects as a cheap source of protein as well as for the cellulose-like substance on their wings.
... He had opened his farm just six months earlier in a newly constructed building that municipal code officials complained was too close to protected watershed land. At noon on Aug. 20, while workers were out for lunch, a demolition crew knocked down the building. The roaches made a run for it. ... Over lunch at a restaurant down the block from his farm, Wang placed a plate of fried cockroaches seasoned with salt on the table along with more conventional cuisine, and proceeded to nibble a few with his chopsticks. He expressed disapproval that visiting journalists refused to sample the roaches.

I've never had a desire to eat dog.  Really though, if you eat meat, and the animal was killed humanely, I don't see how it is ethically any different from eating any other animal.  I have to wonder how many people there who eat dog were horrified at the scene?  I've sure noticed that most people here have lost touch with where their food comes from.  And I've heard stories of dogs being skinned while still alive, which is way, way worse than killing one and butchering it.

 

List of non-commercial meats I have tried, not counting fish:

 

(Wild) Duck

(Wild) Goose

Quail

Dove

Pigeon

Meadowlark (Hey, it was in with a covey of quail.)

Deer

Elk

Antelope (Pronghorn)

Oryx

Barbary Sheep

Squirrel

Jackrabbit

Cottontail

French Lop

Rattlesnake

 

With each and every one of those, I knew exactly what I was eating, because I either killed it myself, or I knew the person who did.  Funny thing is, I'll eat rattlesnake, but will say no to dog.

Food fraud is only going to increase. Look it is the job of every CEO in the food industry to get all your money and give you nothing in return thereby maximising shareholder value. It is their job to sell you air and water if they can get away with it. You think for a second they will stop at mixing in a bit of roadkill? No, they are going to be digging up graves next.
