Chinese Walmart Donkey Meat/Fox Meat Controversy

Fox sold as donkey at Chinese Walmart

(Shanghai, China) Batches of donkey meat have been recalled by Walmart stores in China after being found to contain fox meat.
According to local news reports, the problem was first brought to the attention of food standards officials when a customer, identified only by his surname Wang, found the so-called donkey meat looked, smelled and tasted strange.

He sent the product to a testing institute, and the Shandong Food and Drug Administration later announced that it contained fox meat.
Readers may recall a previous blog entry reporting on Chinese Magic Chicken which, together with the fox-donkey story, demonstrate that Chinese foodstuffs are not always as advertised.
