40-Year-Old Meat Seized in China


(CNN)Some 800 tonnes of smuggled frozen meat have been seized by Chinese authorities, including one batch dating from the 1970s, state media reported.

The meat was bound for restaurants, retailers and supermarkets in Hunan province, where it was found, and other Chinese provinces and major cities, according to a report from Xinhua, China’s official news agency, on Tuesday.

The seized meat included poultry and beef and was reported to be worth 10 million yuan ($1.6 million).

Some packages were rotten and others were around 40 years old — packed and stamped at the height of China’s Cultural Revolution.

    Must have missed the political correctness meeting that I cannot joke about liberal central planners.

    Duly noted.

    Someone has used my screen name. This last post was not me. I will let Owen know.

    The culprit must have been at the secret political correctness meeting. Stealing identities, and hiding behind them, must have been the top of the agenda.
