Time for a bit of schadenfreude from the Chinese food industry?

This article reminds me so much of the rather grim tales of Tyson (and other corporate meat processors) in Eric Schlosser's book Fast Food Nation. Not to put anyone off their chicken nuggets or anything . . .

The line in the Times article about salmonella commonly being found in the feces of humans and animals reminds me of one of Schlosser's classic chapter-ending lines: "There's s**t in the meat."

Sadly, we had our own situtation up here recently. :(
