Food for thought: China's Food Safety | 101 East

  • Every year two million people die from unsafe food and water around the world. Food safety experts warn these deaths may be caused by human design, and nowhere is this trend more prevalent than in China.

    Tracing the making of a bowl of wonton noodle soup, a 101 East investigation exposes the toxic stew this iconic dish has become.

    From tainted additives in noodles to growth hormones in pork, to industrial filler posing as meat, presenter Steve Chao finds that anything is possible for producers looking to cut corners and make a fast buck.

    Do you have a story about Chinese food you consumed? @AJ101East goes undercover to expose the hidden harm in China's Food Industry.

    Sometimes I think China is intentionally killing its people with these dangerous poison "foods" in an effort to reduce the population.

    First the tainted formula then the gutter oil and now rodents of all sorts found in Chinese food. Why God is the government people care less about each other.

    OK, I'm sorry, but what's the point of a car seat if the kid isn't strapped in properly- the girl was also sitting without a seatbelt yet the mother had hers on. If you're so worried about your kid after the chemical scandal you should at least force her to wear a seatbelt

    Last year I bought noodles from a chinese brand in a Dutch supermarket. When I threw it in the boiling water I saw some black particles floating on the surface of the water. I was in shock when I looked closer. It were a kind of black beetles! Already died of course, but so disgusting! I called the food authority and they asked me to send it to them. Since then I will not buy anything what is produced in China and will only buy noodles produced in countries where hygiene has high standards. I did some research and a lot of food facories in China are so disgustung unhygienic that you even won't let your dog to eat from it. Also instant noodles all contains palmoil, what you have to avoid anyway, that can cause cancer even. I buy whole grain noodles now without the unhealthy palmoil. I made my own spicesmix for quick instant noodles.
