Has the USDA gone completely nuts????
I just read this clip in the December AARP paper today...
"Boomerang Chicken: The U.S. Department of Agriculture is now permitting slaughtered U.S. and Canadian chickens to be processed in China and then exported back to the States."
I'm so angry I could just scream... Haven't they found enough ways to contaminate chicken right here??? They raise the chickens on huge 'farms' that keep them caged, their entire lives, pump them full of antibiotics, then gather chickens from all over and send them to even bigger processing plants... After they've been killed, cleaned, cut up and packaged they're sent to huge warehouses to be shipped to huge stores to be repackaged and displayed for all the other customers to handle before you get a chance at it... Do they HAVE to send to CHINA too??? Now we have to deal with them shipping it thousands of miles taking, God only knows, how much more time and more chances of contamination, to a country that actually poisoned baby formula, and then send it back for us to eat???????????
