Rats. Criminals? MMMM. I see messing with food has now become popular even in Ireland, horse meat as beef and nobody was aware, not even the regulators, the management of the processors.. Rats criminals? Our Dept of Agriculture said "there was no health or human safety issues" MMMM Rats Criminals? Yes there was, as horses that were give wormers etc which quite clearly state on the box and labels 'animal must not enter food chain/ unfit for human consuption' MMMM Rats Criminals? Monsanto messing with the food seed, controlling world supply, so called Governments not Govering rather faciltating companies. MMMMMM who are the Rats? MMMMMM who are the criminals?
Peace and Honesty,
The truth will set you free,

This is playing to a sinister vegetarian agenda as rat is supposed to be very rich in protein so rich that black rats will frequently snack down on their own. The Chinese have a long history of snacking down on unorthodox meats and don't be surprised if the gangs get rid of the victims using the same methods.

Appalling that this is happening. What is sinister about vegetarianism Louise D. ? Do you have vested interests in the meat industry? Do you work in it? Vegetarism and veganism are much healthier diets, less costly, and produce food at first hand. Much cheaper too. We could feed the world if we all stopped consuming meat. No more starvation. No more malnutrition.

And you thought kangaroo in Macdonald burgers, worm meat in Wimpy Bar (Burgerking), or that Burger Chef that got caught in 1972 in Alabama catching stray cats and adding them to the meat grinder was bad?

Think we could get the perpetrators to chop up all the Communists and sell them as Soylent Green before we have them shot for tampering with the food?

Not nice, but there are areas in the world, where itīs common to eat rats without noxious effects.

The Chinese are known for eating just about anything. Too bad they're not honest about it.

I'm not surprised that they would do something like this!
