This story stems from an investigation conducted about two years ago. I first heard about it while I was working overseas, a warning from my then-girlfriend not to eat anywhere I didn’t trust. It’s worth noting that those articles are so eager to use the linkbaiting “Poop oil ew ew ew” that they ignore the actual health issue - the process used to clean the sewer oil leaves nephrotoxic compounds. Eat this stuff long enough and your kidneys will simply shut down.

As D Johnston notes, this is old news in China — the latest in a series of food scares: milk with melamine in it, sausage made from chemical-laden pigs, and doctored baby formula. Gutter oil is only the latest food scare.

It is not widespread. Seriously. I’ve been here five years with no ill effects. But I don’t typically buy food from street vendors, unless they are regularly in the same place doing a brisk business.

Avoiding China because of food scares makes no good sense. Sorry.
