Warning: Made in China (2nd Post)
In October, I blogged about how all sorts of products made in China were increasingly susceptible to toxins, most recently-food. Just last week, Hong Kong authorities found trace of melamine again in imported Chinese eggs. This comes a day before the news from TIME Magazine that the avian (bird) flu was found in poultry in the city's markets. This caused a 3-week shutdown of the poultry market (some chickens are sold live in HK) and raised questions of whether the bird flu vaccine was still active. All this makes for an interesting (or deprived?) visit to Hong Kong.
