Mmmmm…Chinese Cooking Oil “Made from Sewage”

In: News

The news that a tenth of all cooking oil used in China may be made from recycled sewage and laced with toxic contaminants has stunned China.
Originating from a report on a state radio station, the news that “Chinese are eating 3,000,000 tons of ‘recycled cooking oil’ each year, but it is 100 times more toxic than arsenic!” spread throughout China in a matter of days.
The cooking oil is apparently “recycled” from raw sewage taken from sewers and elsewhere, which is heated and filtered. After filtration the liquid is transparent and free of particulate matter, and can be rendered into cooking oil.

I have a couple friends always saying “you should check out so-and-so place in Chinatown…You should shop more at the Kam-Man market.” Not for me, sirs. Not for me.
