Chinese Chicken Cleared for the US
Initially, the companies will be allowed to export only cooked poultry products from birds raised in the United States and Canada. But critics predicted that the government would eventually expand the rules, so that chickens and turkeys bred in China could end up in the American market. This means that birds will be raised in the United States, exported to China, then re-exported back to the United States. Obviously food safety is a concern, as the FDA just tied the deaths of more than 500 dogs to chicken jerky treats that came from China. Because the new poultry will be processed, it will not require country-of-origin labeling. Consumers eating chicken soup or chicken nuggets will not know if the meat came from China.
