Your Chinese Street-Food Was Probably Cooked In Poop Oil
If we need yet more proof of how government regulations and agencies protect public safety, look no further at this stunning and nauseating report on the use of “gutter oil” by Street vendors in China.
Foodspin pretty much sums it up…
Street vendors in China have taken to using something called “gutter oil”—quite literally the oil gathered from gutter runoff, dumpster sludge, garbage juice, and untreated fucking sewage fuck fuck fuck—to cook food for human consumption. And then unwitting humans are consuming that food. As you might guess, not everyone’s happy about that.
I quit eating Chinese food nearly 15 years ago after witnessing first hand the unsanitary and deplorable conditions of numerous Chinese establishments here in the good ole’ US of A. I haven’t missed Chinese food one iota and this video will help keep my ban in check for another 15 years.
