Everytime I read about Chinese meat packers, i'm reminded of a secondhand comment attributed to one of the Sanderson Farms guys about how much they make shipping chicken FEET to China, gag.

It's not like Smithfield hires American workers any ways. I read some where that in one of there bacon plants that there is over 18 different languages spoken. That's why I don't buy anything from there family line of products.

I'm going Kosher. We have sold our country's soul to the devil. I hold their stockholder's responsible or the powers that be. Food was our ultimate weapon.

I started a thread about buying U.S.A. made guns several months ago and 3/4 of the responses were about buying what ever the hell anybody wanted, screw U.S. manufacturers. Glad to see everybody up in arms about bacon. We have a very bright future ahead of us.
