Garbage Used to Make Lard For Human Consumption

So nauseating... Full article here.

Quick Summary:
  • At Fanchang Grease Factory in Taizhou, a city in China, made lard from sewage, swill, pesticides, and recycled industrial oil.
  • The lard is only supposed to be made from pure hog fat.
  • The factory sold the lard at half of the price of other wholesalers.
  • 83,000 pounds of raw materials and 11,600 pounds of lard were found at the location.
  • Samples contained 11 times more acid than national standards.
  • The factory has been shut down.
