Chinese Fake Beef was Pork

Police have confiscated more than 20,000kg of "beef" from a factory in northwest China's Shaanxi province.
The fake beef was found to be actually made from pork, which had been treated with chemicals such as paraffin wax and industrial salts to make it look like beef.

According to a report in Taiwan's Want China Times, the factory produced and sold between 1,500 to 2,000kg to local markets. It quoted police as saying the factory processed the pork at night and sold it as beef for between 25 and 33 yuan (between S$5.10 and S$6.70) per kilogram the next day.

Six other workshops were found to be producing the fake beef, and police have seized their meat as evidence.
News of this discovery is particularly notable given the fact that Xi'an, the capital of Shaanxi, has a large Muslim community, and some may have fallen victim to purchasing evidently non-Halal food.

This also isn't the first time tainted meat has been found to be sold in China. In May, Medical Daily reported that 904 people were arrested for "meat-related offences" in the first part of this year.

In the course of these arrests, more than 22 fake or inferior meat products were seized which had E. coli levels that "seriously exceeded standards", according to China's public security ministry.

The arrests included a ring of meat crooks who made more than 10 million yuan (S$2.04 million) from passing off rat, fox and mink meat as mutton, after treating it with gelatin, carmine and nitrate. The "mutton" was then sold in Jiangsu and Shanghai farmers' markets.

Chinese New Year 2013 – The Year of the Snake

Happy Chinese New Year 2013 – The Year of the Snake To all of my Chinese friends in Hong Kong; have a truly fruitful and prosperous New Year ahead! Click to enlarge the image...
People born in the Year of Snake share certain characteristics: intelligent, cute, charming, aware, elegant, mysterious, cunning, and passionate. They may also be proud, vain, vicious. It is said that they are great mediators and good at doing business, which is fortunate, since snakes place a lot of weight on the finer things in life. At home, snakes prefer quiet and relaxing environments and prefer subdued colors and good decor. In love, the snake has high standards for romantic partners and places a weight on intellect and personality. Physically, a snake is beautiful and alluring, but prefers to be the pursuer in any romantic situation. Once she is settled, she may become possessive and aloof, but with a patient and calming partner, a happy union is possible. Depending on the year of birth, one may be a metal snake (1941, 2001), water snake (1953, 2013), wood snake (1905, 1965), fire snake (1917, 1977), or earth snake (1929, 1989). It is said that metal snakes are stubborn and ambitious; water snakes are motivated and adept managers; wood snakes are grounded and enjoy the company of a small group of friends; fire snakes are opinionated and relentless debaters; and earth snakes are down to earth and prefer to lead calm lives.
Fireworks illuminate the city's skyline in Hong Kong, on February 11, 2013. The Chinese lunar new year, which this year marks the year of the snake, was celebrated by Chinese communities the world over. Chinese New Year runs from the 7th to 12th February 2013
