Lori said that she heard that American chicken producers had received approval from the appropriate governing and legislative groups to ship chickens to China to be processed. Apparently growing them, killing them, shipping them to China, processing them and then shipping them back saves money over processing them here.
Talk about "farm fresh," huh?
Anyhow, here's my conspiracy theory take on it:
Step 1: It's cheaper to ship to China, process in China, ship back the U.S..
Step 2: It's cheaper to grow and process in China and ship to the U.S.
Step 3: It's cheaper to grow, process and sell in China. Forget the U.S.
And suddenly we're left eating pigeon and feral neighborhood cats we catch ourselves.
