Playing chicken with China
Placeholder Image
Remember that old joke, “Why did the chicken cross the road?” Here’s a new one: Why does a dead chicken cross the ocean twice? The answer is because it’s cheaper to process U.S.-raised and slaughtered chicken in China than it is in the USA. Last August, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, announced that four Chinese plants have been “certified” to process chicken raised and slaughtered in the USA, then ship that chicken back here for to us to eat.Is this a crazy idea or what?
