Farm Raised Chicken, Shipped To China, Processed, Then Reshipped to U.S

Better watch what y'all eating.. In 2014, The Department of Agriculture allowed Chinese poultry processing companies to ship fully cooked, frozen and refrigerated chicken to the US. China processes our pork as well as our chicken.  Raised on American Farms, but shipped to China for packaging, and then shipped back to America.

Smithfield Farms, the largest pork producing farm in the USA was sold in September to China with the unanimous support of its stockholders!! The hogs will still be raised here, but slaughtered and packaged for sale there before being sent back here. This includes labels of Morrell, Eckrich, Krakus, Cudahy, Premium Ham, Cook’s and Gwaltney

The same with many chickens. They can now be shipped there, but when they come back all that needs to be labelled is that they WERE RAISED IN THE USA .  The labels do not inform the consumer the product was processed in China !!!

Our great FDA at work again. The chickens will be all processed and most will be sold to fast food restaurants for sandwiches, along with schools and supermarkets. The China slaughter and processing are not nearly equal to the requirements here.

We recently learned that Starkist Tuna is now owned by Korea , and is in big conflict with the U.S.concerning quality, safety, and records, which Korea refuses to  release.

Support your local farmers market to receive certified fresh vegetables. Don't be scared to spend an extra few dollars to eat fresh Amish Raised chicken. Your health is more important than saving a dollar or two.
