    If this is 2011 what is now? The United States imports 86% of its fish from Asia. These numbers are straight from our gov.

    Yeah man, that is why I stick to local seafood. The problem is that most of the country doesn't have that convenience.

The world needs to step up and force them to clean it up before we have no untainted fish. Yes I know about fresh water fish and mercury. I grew up in Michigan. We nuked them, rebuilt them, now they nuked themselves. It's their turn to fix it themselves under the pressure of the rest of the world. Sure these thoughts are a little over the top, but I'm a realist. People need to quit closing their eyes and think it will go away. Dreamer just dream. Realists get it done.
    How do you feel about our chickens being sent to China for processing then shipped back here? I'm sure they're plants are clean.

    Not sure what brands do that. I can tell you the Tyson chicken plant processes the chicken on site. I can't see how shipping two ways would end up being cheaper.

    kinda looks like it might be safer getting it done in China.

    "And, chicken lovers, brace yourselves: There's more. A report suggests chicken inspections here in the U.S. might be poised to take a turn for the worse. The Government Accountability Office this week it has serious "questions about the validity" of the new procedures for inspecting poultry across the country.

    Basically, these changes would replace many USDA inspectors on chicken processing lines with employees from the poultry companies themselves. The USDA has been piloting the new procedures, which will save money and significantly speed up processing lines, in 29 chicken plants. As The Washington Post , the plan is to roll out the new procedures eventually to "most of the country's 239 chicken and 96 turkey plants."

    You Esse, Ewe Assay!

    I go to china ever other year to visit my inlaws. When ya go to a real market the slaughter the animal on sight. I have no issues with it. Others may. For the whole shipping slaughter thing I have never looked into it. I assume it is done on a ship just offshore. The furniture business has been doing this for years. Well those are some I'm my thoughts.

    One ship furniture, one slaughter ship. Skins go back to furniture ship to be tanned as seat covers, sold as ostrich skin seat covered chairs for us all to buy.

    Seems like a legit news source.

    And the commenters on that site are even bigger idiots. Many claiming to be taking KI since the disaster in Japan. It is always a good idea to poison your thyroid as protection against something that doesn't effect the US:

    I will just leave this here:

    A blog with actual scientific references. Something the fear monger sites seem to always lack.
