Unhappy The High Cost of Cheap Chicken

The reality is that the majority of Americans don't own enough land to have a small chicken coop or to even raise a garden. When you rely on companies to process your food, you don't really know what you are getting. Food recalls on certain products happen every day! Most chicken has bacteria called Salmonella and strains of this bacteria can make you very sick. (food poisoning) Read this article on "The High Cost of Cheap Chicken."
Chicken Safety | Chicken Contamination - Consumer Reports

Knowing that bacteria is already on the chicken and then you ship it overseas to be handled on potentially unclean surfaces, you are asking for trouble. The article says you must cook chicken at a temperature of 165 F. or higher to kill the bacteria. If you don't think companies will ship chicken overseas then you need to read this article. Seafood from the United States is already being processed in China. Chicken from China? Your Seafood is Already Being Processed There | Food Safety News

Sadly, they are not required to label where the chicken is processed. So you will never know if that chicken nugget or frozen chicken pot pie contains chicken processed in China!

I will believe it when I see actual photos/videos of live butcher sized chicken being loaded onto trucks from chicken barns, transported hundreds of miles to coasts here in the US , then reloaded onto ships for a long cramped ride to China......unloaded onto Chinese trucks then unloaded at China processing plants.

How many chickens would still be alive ?

How expensive would those chickens be ?

They're dead! They are not shipped alive. This is really no secret and no lie.

You can google it anywhere.

lol. what a joke! It just show how stupid some americans are! I am not that suprised if U.S is going to another economic crisis soon. Any one who visited china would know that chicken price is far more expensive in China than U.S. Why would any company send chicken to China (with 50 export tax ) get processed there and sell back to U.S ??

Americans do need to stand up for our own food as, like you said, our government doesn't stand up for us. We really to vote better next time, but, that is for a different thread.

We eat very little meat at our house as my hubby is totally vegetarian. The chicken I do buy is organic and intend to contact Costco to be sure it is totally a USA product. Do not forget all the news reports, including video, about the diseased chickens in china being gased as they were unfit for consumption.

Remember, it is processed chicken (chicken nuggets, canned chicken, etc.) and not the whole chicken or parts that one would purchase in the fresh meat department of a grocery store. Whole chicken or parts that are sold in meat departments should indicate something about the country of origin - like Tilapia which is why I stopped buying it (I noticed the "product of China" labeling on the package).

At this time if you ONLY eat whole chicken or parts, I would not ruffle my feathers too much.
