Corporations such as Tyson and Cargill have been putting pressure on Congress to lift the ban because they are building factories in China.

What are they...crazy??!!! I for one DO NOT want Chinese chicken imported. With the bird flu ( H5 N1virus) there infecting their birds and jumping from poultry to humans and causing deaths it is not a good idea at all!! It could get into our domestic chickens and make everyone in the USA sick. Not to mention that with other items from there that have made people sick as well like sheetrock, children's toys and other items with lead in them, melamine in pet foods, it doesn't seem like they have very good safety inspectors. We must not let them be imported!!!

China is the biggest customer of US chicken paws (feet) exports. We export over $250,000,000 worth of chicken feet to China annually.
Migrating waterfowl are a large threat for bird flu transmisson to US chickens.
