    Right before the Labor Day weekend went into full swing, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced that the organization had ended a ban on Chinese chicken imports.

    A significant percentage of products we use are manufactured in China. But how about processed food?

    Right before the Labor Day weekend went into full swing, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced that the organization had ended a ban on Chinese chicken imports.

    Four Chinese poultry processing plantswere officially permitted to ship processed chicken to the United States. The decision to allow these 4 plants to ship processed chicken to America was reached after inspections conducted earlier in the year.

    The completed report on the passing poultry plants noted that the audit’s goal was “to determine whether the People's Republic of China's food safety system governing poultry processing remains equivalent to that of the United States, with the ability to produce products that are safe, wholesome, unadulterated, and properly labeled."

    For now in the beginning stages, the chicken will be slaughtered in the United States and in other certified countries before being shipped to China for processing and re-exported back to the US.

    What do you think? Would you eat chicken that you knew came from China?
