And now for something completely different. This in from the Shanghai Daily, via the New York Times:
A factory manager in eastern China has been arrested for using grease from swill, sewage, pesticides and recycled industrial oil to make lard for human consumption, the state news media said Monday.
Wow. In case your stomach isn’t churning yet:
“Some was recycled edible grease, such as oil refined from swill and cooked oil,” [SH Daily] said. “Some was grease rendered from sewage, and some was recycled industrial grease.”
Mmmmmmm. Enjoy your weekend.
