You have to read this; http://www.cnn.com/2007/WORLD/asiapcf/07/12/cardboard.food.ap/index.html Not only is the product 60% cardboard, the stuff is picked up from the floor and soaked in caustic soad before being chopped. How often do you eat chinese?

I never eat chinese so I know I'm ok on this one. It does make you wonder what goes on in lots of food manufacturing and takeaway places though. Best to buy fresh stuff and cook it yourself.

Another good example of learning to cook yourself. And is this legal?

Ugh! That is even more disgusting that the episode of Hell's Kitchen where the woman took pasta from the garbage to fill an order.

Wow a new diet? Low Card! That is just nasty as nasty can be. People are eating this stuff and not knowing it to. The dude acted kind of seemed proud of that fact. Good grief, if ya go for a visit, I say pack a lunch. Yuck

That's horrible. I never liked much chinese food, myself, but my youngest son loves it. After I read it, I emailed it to him. I haven't talked to him, so don't know if he read it yet, or not.

Ok, that was totally disgusting! Eeeeewwwwww....cardboard? The things people come up with to supposedly cut corners on costs. But it looks like that shortcut backfired big time. I haven't had Chinese for quite a long time, and after watching that, I don't think I will ever eat it again. Yuck!

Just when I am in the middle of a rant over how much our government interferes in our lives you toss this article in! I can only hope this is not the "standard" for restaurants there. I also applaud the investigative reporting that had the place shut down. Obviously there are some regulating factors in place. I love all Asian food with the exception of squid, octopus, or anything with tentacles! To me, it's the same as putting a handful of rubber bands in your mouth and chewing, but they keep growing and growing and no matter how hard I try, I can't swallow ~donna

That is just nasty. Every once in a while you hear about something gross in the foods we eat. It makes you think twice about eating at all. We had an e coli scare here from spinach and other greens not too long ago too. It is getting to the point where if you didn't grow it, you shouldn't eat it. You never know what people are doing. I think with the e coli, there may have been people defacating in the fields, who knows. It is really getting to a point that is quite scary to even think about.

While I do love Chinese food, but I would never eat in a restaurant...I happen to be a good cook and primarily do a lot of French cooking, but have had my hand at making chinese food as well....at least I know what I'm getting! In the past I've made homemade wonton soup with homemade wontons, beef curry dumplings and various stir fries...ah...want to come over for dinner? LOL

All I can say is that I am very glad I don't eat Chinese food - the only time I do is when it is cooked for me by a chinese friend! xxx

yuck how filthy,the poor people that eat this stuff .am not sure if I have really ate chinese food or not I never ate one of the things that was in the pic. Here in the states we go to different palces that might be chinese but also could be mandrin, japanese or thiewan food . I always eat the noodles and beef meat as I can see it so I pick out what looks good to me . And I have seen sories about these places thru the history channel I think it was where the place where they killed the chickens was out in the back of a place where they stuck the chickens on top of a pile after being killed then defeatherd and put in old dirty rinse tub to clesn?all over a dirt floor. I think if I went to thses places I would get skinny for I couldnt eat there sorry I know popel have to live like this and eat this but no wonder their bones are not good eatting cardboard would do it to ya.

That is disgusting! It's also one of the reasons I don't eat Chinese food or food from street venders. Ick!

Well I'm glad to say never after reading that! Seriosuly - I don't ike Chinese, or Thai or any of that kind of food. They have a tendancy to cook in either coconut or peanut oil, both of which have a tendancy to make me feel quite nauseous - I'm not allergic to nuts exactly, but I truly don't like them - so I avoid most Chinese foods for that reason. Interesting article though - thanks for osting.

Makes me shudder. Nothing I eat in Chinese restaurants resembles these buns. I have seen them in restaurants out of town, though. The food I choose usually has visible slices of meat and lots of vegetables. That does still leave room for me to wonder about the sauces. I do not get sick when I eat local Chinese food, but often do when I eat Mexican food here in town. We actually eat at home more and more often.

Thanks for sharing that! Just yesterday my neighbor was telling me that the Chinese use human waste to fertilize their fruits and vegetables and how bits of toilet paper have been found in heads of broccoli. You can be sure I eat Chinese foods no longer! From now on whenever I buy anything I will be checking it's point of origin and more often than not choosing organically grown food produced in the United States. A few years ago I was digusted by the scandal of Chinese crayons imported to America were found to contail lead. Now with all the recent food,toothpaste and produce stories it just gets worse. I don't know why we are importing products from a country that has so little reguard for health and safety especially when people here are held to higher standards. Hopefully others will start to boycott their products too. Maybe that will get the attention of the Chinese and motivate them to clean up their act!
