• Decades-old frozen meat seized in China food scandal


    BEIJING: Almost half a billion dollars worth of smuggled frozen meat — some of it rotting and more than 40 years old — has been seized in China, reports said Wednesday. More than 100,000 tons of chicken wings, beef and pork worth up to three billion yuan ($483 million) were seized in the nationwide crackdown, the state-run China Daily newspaper said. “It was smelly, and I nearly threw up when I opened the door,” said an official from Hunan province, where 800 tons were seized. A report on the official Hunan propaganda website said that the meat seized locally came from the “border area” with Vietnam, where it was “difficult to control the flow of meat”.
