Right - and don’t ever try their food.
What are we to do with all these food products now labeled USA/China?
I don’t want to consume any processed food from China, how am I supposed to tell now?
If you feed it to your dog or cat and they get sick, that’s a pretty good indicator.
Eat only the good half and leave the bad half on your plate.
Advances in manufacturing technology are bringing about this revolution.
Good advice! ; )
Morale may be an issue in China.
Do as I do. Find a rancher who raises beef. Buy from him. Find a farmer who raises pigs, buy from him. Raise and can your own vegetables or buy from someone who does. Simple actually. I haven’t bought meat in a grocery for many, many moons. I have enough room that I keep 20 laying chickens for eggs and once or twice a year I buy 25 day old chicks from a chicken hatchery and have them mailed to me to raise 8 weeks for meat.
The meat is cheaper when you buy from the farmer/rancher you just have to have a freezer or two. Plus, you should consider hunting. Fresh venison, elk, moose and even bear are very tasty and you don’t have to worry about some China toxin hiding in the meat.
City girl here. I didn’t know you could mail chicks.
Yes. Hard to believe, but true. They come sexed even. I order mine from the Welp Hatchery in Iowa and they arrive at my Post Office here in Washington State 2-3 days later. You can order straight run, you get both hens & roosters. Or you can order males or females. The males grow a bit faster and at 8 weeks are big broiler roaster types. Get females and they grow slower and at 8 weeks they are at the perfect fryer age. I order 1/2 males and 1/2 females.
We have never had one die in transit, but it does happen. We have a mortality rate of 1.5% on day old chicks we have raised in the past 10 years. They are very hardy and worth the trouble. Chicken you raise yourself tastes much, much better. Everybody I know wants me to raise meat birds for them, but I just don’t have the room.
How do you deal with the *ahem* aroma from chicken droppings? Assuming you have neighbors within a hundred yards of where you're keeping them, of course.

I’m amazed that baby chicks can survive w/o nourishment for so long.
Its very feasible, actually, and in San Francisco male chicks don’t even raise an eyebrow.
Thank you! I’ll be here all week.
Which subspecies is good for a total beginner dummy..?
Look on the label. I’m very careful about purchasing canned fish.
Yes 3D printing is in its infancy but its going to change the whole game.
Technology is the not the driver so much as technique. Today's manufacturing workers are expected to improve the process again and again. Just turning the wrench 8 hours a day is a thing of the past.
This is part of the reason why you see employers are having trouble hiring while unemployment is so high. Even a line worker job requires brains today.
