Chinese companies mass producing fake rice out of plastic


by Ethan A. Huff, Naturalnews staff writer

The Chinese food contamination freak show is back in full swing with new reports out of Singapore indicating that certain Chinese companies are now mass producing and selling fake rice to unwitting villagers. According to a report in the Korean-language Weekly Hong Kong, the manufacturers are blending potatoes, sweet potatoes, and plastic industrial resin to produce the imitation rice.

A report in Very Vietnam states that an official from the Chinese Restaurant Association has announced that eating three bowls of this fake rice is the equivalent of eating an entire plastic bag. Consuming such plastic material is obviously a serious health hazard, and officials are allegedly gearing up to conduct an investigation into the factories accused of producing the phony rice.

The scandal is not a surprise when considering China’s long legacy food problems, including the 2008 melamine-tainted milk incident where roughly 300,000 people were injured and at least six infants died as a result of being poisoned by the toxic chemical. Other tainted food from China has included melamine-tainted pet foods, lead-tainted children’s cups, and even another fake rice case where a Chinese company added synthetic flavorings to ordinary rice to trick people into thinking it was the more expensive “Wuchang” variety.

Some media commentators have already begun to run wild with the fake rice story, comparing the imitation rice to what they say is the imitation reality in which the world lives.

“Fake stimulus, fake money printing, fake GDP growth, fake goods and services being produced, is … forcing us to consume fake food because we can’t afford real food, because we have no real growth, we have no real economy, we have no real industry, we only have fake stuff,” bemoaned talk show co-host Stacy Herbert from Russia Today. “So it makes sense that we’re only eating fake food.”

  1. This is truly sad, do these guys even have a heart. Reminds of of the incident at some mines in Zambia while people we call leaders are going out there praising these guys to be good investors.LMFO…..note this at LMAO cos my smile is on my face.

  2. The Chinese food contamination freak show is back in full swing with new reports out of Singapore indicating that certain Chinese companies are now mass producing and selling fake rice to unwitting villagers.NOT JUST THOSE VILLAGERS, BUT FOOOLISH ZAMBIANS

  3. I find it difficult to entirely believe this story. Could be a smear campaign against China’s rise and rise into a formidable economic power.

  4. Chinese food products are generally of a dodgy character! What’s worse, our ZABS is ill equipped to detect such contaminated goods and before you know it, some politician will be receiving this rice as relief food while praising the Chinese for their generosity. That said, China remains an important trading partner and the US & the West have all outsourced their manufacturing there. We need to take a cautious yet rational approach vis-a-vis our China relations.

  5. Umeni takokota amafuba ninshi uko afuma amina fya ayatuntulu. If they can feed their own plastic imagine wat they will feed you…

  6. In Zambia, am sure people have already consumed this:
    Fake Chicken (3 weeks broiler) + Plastic Rice (from Taiwan) = Stanted growth (Admission at UTH and no medicine) resulting to ….

  7. What do you expect from the land where companies names derive from fairytales like course they’ll sell you fake stuff like blue chalk for viagra,imitation designer bags,dogmeat becomes “chicken” & copycat BMW’s.Oh,not to mention these folks all look alike.

  8. The question should how would mediocre nations led by greedy hyenas like ours detect or stop stuff like this from entering through our borders.

  9. i am sadden by this chinese development. This explains why my rice consumption has gone up from eating a single portion to double. Now i know that the cause is plastic rice. Tomorrow i am seeing a GP for a CT scan least plastics have started piling in my stomach.

  10. Assault of the munyelo!

    What are they feeding you in Zambia if they are feeding their own people utubudiza!

  11. Did you know? The Chinese have a formula for producing eggs chemically. When you have too large a population that you cannot feed, you become inovative in food prodution methodologies. The rice report does not surprise me.

  12. People , people twasanswa, let us grow our own and buy our own foods, local is laka….lol Like Mongu, Nakonde and Chama rice. Lets us support our own pantu utu tu choncholi tu katulisha amafi !
