Well, if you haven’t thought about raising your own chickens for meat (or buying them from a local farmer) you should now.
Let’s think of all the things China has done wrong with our imports.
1) Childrens toys with lead
2) Dog food that dogs can’t even survive through
3) Crappy car parts (1000’s of recalls constantly)
What makes the USDA think that this is a good idea? There are some things I appreciate about the USDA and then other times, I wonder what kind of morons work there. The US has become so wrapped up in food products and by-products that no one even eats food anymore. If I can’t pronounce the ingredient list, or translate it, I don’t buy it. I have 5 boxes of Kraft Mac&Cheese that have been in my cupboard for over a year now because I don’t want to eat them. I bought them when we were too poor to care, but now that we’re doing better, I leave them there.
Meat used to be the one thing I could rely on (or so I thought) that was semi-fresh. Now my chicken is going to do a globe trot before it gets to me? Nope. I’m done now.
I have officially added “Bigger Yard” to my house hunting list. We have a local butcher for pigs and beef, but not chicken. I guess I’ll be learning to grow some of my own.
