Chinese Wal-Marts Recall Donkey Meat for Containing Fox DNA

BY NEWS DESK | JANUARY 3, 2014

The Chinese branch of Wal-Mart super stores is issuing a recall of donkey meat products after some of it was found to contain fox DNA.

The “five spice” donkey meat is considered a delicacy in parts of China. Fox meat is not – but it is cheap, as foxes are commonly bred in China for their fur.

Someone from the supplier’s factory has already been detained on suspicion of fraud, according to news reports.

China is no stranger to food controversies, including a 2008 scandal involving milk and infant formula tainted with melamine that sickened an estimated 300,000 people, including 54,000 hospitalized babies.

Wal-Mart’s Chinese stores have also earned some notoriety stateside for allegedly carrying products of questionable food safety quality, including raw meat available to grab with bare hands, sets of ribs sitting in the open air, and live frogs and turtles.

Wal-Mart has more than 400 stores in China.

    Have you ever tried ostrich burgers? Seriously.

    They taste like the richest beef - phenomenal. But they are very low in fat and calories because it essentially is a big turkey.
