Toxic poultry smuggled into Vietnam
Illegal low quality chicken and pork
preserved by toxic chemicals are making its way through to Vietnam via the
border province of Lang Son.
These are second-grade products, which Chinese people never eat, but are
used in delicious cuisine at restaurants in Vietnam.
The meat is of low quality and worse,
preserved by toxic substances. A trader reported that tainted chicken legs and
entrails are submerged in various chemicals to make them look fresh. At
restaurants chefs only need to mix the meat with spices to make them taste good.
Second-grade chickens, which are not quarantined, have also been
illegally imported through the border province of Lang Son.
No distinguishing of tainted meat
local police agency has set checkpoints to prevent the inflow of Chinese animal
products, tonnes are still being sold at markets each day.
