Fancy a bowl of “stinky feet rice vermicelli”? That’s what one factory in Dongguan is now offering consumers in yet another Chinese food safety scandal.
Undercover photographs taken in the rice products factory show plainclothes employees kicking around piles of the vermismelly on the floor with their bare feet, trampling over them as they walk about and even laying down to take their afternoon naps on piles of the nasty noodles before packaging them up and shipping them to a store near you.
The local food safety administration has already announced that the factory responsibility has been closed temporarily to get their act together, and other have been cautioned to improve their hygiene conditions. With this and the Kunming factory that’s been using feet-washing water to make rice vermicelli, however, there’s a pretty good chance we’ve all been putting someone’s foot in our mouths.
