Wal-Mart Recalls Donkey Meat In China As Containing Fox Meat

225px-New_Walmart_Logo250px-Donkey_1_arp_750pxNormally, a product containing donkey meat would be the reason for a recall. However, in China, it is the lack of donkey meat that has caused a scandal. The Chinese have found that a produce called “Five Spice” donkey meat contained traced of meat from other animals, particularly fox meat. We previously saw scandals involving rancid or rat meat being sold in China. However, from a Western sensibilities standpoint, this is a rather novel claim that donkey meat was contaminated by non-donkey meat.

Wal-Mart will reimburse customers. Donkey is a popular snack with 2.4 million donkeys slaughtered each year in China for human consumption.

Thus, “not enough donkey meat” is now a complaint being investigated in China. Of course with Wal-Mart you are guaranteed it is also the cheapest possible donkey meat.

We have not heard from the foxes however for one simple reason . . .

  1. How did fox meat get into the donkey meat? Looks like they’ve been caught shoveling road kill into the vat.

  2. Keep in mind when you are in a grocery store and thinking about pork, that Smithfields has been bought out by some Chinese company. Think twice. And thrice on Sundays.

  3. Eeyore would just say….. You know it’s going to be a bad day…….

  4. My sister in law has sampled lion meat. Once a lion or lioness escaped from a Chinese zoo and was shot dead by the police. The Chinese never waste anything so they cooked the lion and my sister in law got to sample a piece. I will have to ask her opinion of it.

  5. How dare China be upset with Wal Mart. After all, how many hundreds of thousands of well paying manufacturing jobs have been shipped overseas to China and other nations, so Wal Mart can pad their profits.
