Dong Thap, Vietnam - August 31, 2012: Farming Of Red Tilapia In

If you are still eating cheap food, perhaps this will finally help you wake up. Oh, and this story isn’t new. This didn’t just happen. It’s BEEN happening.

Asian Seafood Raised on Pig Feces

Around 27 percent of the seafood Americans eat comes from China and the FDA has found that these shipments are frequently contaminated. BUT, the agency only inspects about 2.7 percent of imported food. Thankfully, if it’s contaminated, it’s rejected. And of those rejected, 1,380 loads were seafood from Vietnam ( for filth and salmonella)- including 81 from Ngoc Sinh.

A visit to Ngoc Sinh Seafoods Trading & Processing Export Enterprise, on Vietnam’s southern coast, will find workers standing on a dirty floor sorting shrimp. Besides the trash on the floor, there are flies crawling over the baskets of processed shrimp stacked in an unchilled room. Elsewhere you’ll find shrimp headed for the U.S. in dirty plastic tubs, covered in ice, “made with tap water that the Vietnamese Health Ministry says should be boiled before drinking because of the risk of contamination with bacteria. Vietnam ships 100 million pounds of shrimp a year to the U.S. That’s almost 8 percent of the shrimp Americans eat.”

Yum. Is anyone still hungry?

But no worries, Ngoc Sinh has been certified as safe by Geneva-based food auditor SGS SA. And yet, SGS spokeswoman Jennifer Buckley reports her company has no record of auditing Ngoc Sinh. Hmmm…

Still hungry? No worries. Let’s move on to China.

From the article:
“At Chen Qiang’s tilapia farm in Yangjiang city in China’s Guangdong province, which borders Hong Kong, Chen feeds fish partly with feces from hundreds of pigs and geese. That practice is dangerous for American consumers, says Michael Doyle, director of the University of Georgia’s Center for Food Safety. “The manure the Chinese use to feed fish is frequently contaminated with microbes like salmonella,” says Doyle, who has studied foodborne diseases in China.”

FDA Rejects Chinese Seafood Shipments

The FDA has also rejected 820 Chinese seafood shipments-including 187 that contained tilapia.
One more time…STILL HUNGRY?
The bottom line is we cannot trust our government to source safe food for us. We must be vigilant for ourselves. Now, you all know I don’t eat meat or seafood, but I wouldn’t feed this garbage to my worst enemy. Buy crap food- it might have eaten crap. Literally.
Time to start buying from verified sources, farmers markets, etc.

    TPP here we come!!! Oh, and no worries, the place of origin of the food won’t be labeled to prevent discrimination against foreign markets! Make sense? Thought so!

    I buy canned or frozen salmon from Alaska and sardines -King Oscar from Norway or Poland and take fish oil supplements. I quit oysters and shrimp long ago early 90’s, when the gulf got so contaminated (chemicals and raw sewage) and seafood made some people sick w/salmonella or worse. If labels like on frozen fish don’t have a country of origin don’t buy. Haddock and whitefish are usually Canadian or N. sea.

    But some people cannot afford high priced domestic or overseas from European countries fish and have to buy at the Dollar Store where if you look at the labels, their fish is mostly from Thailand, China and Vietnam, but that is all some people can afford to buy. So what do people do if they cannot have the money to buy at Whole Foods Market all the time but have to get the low end fish – they are stuck with it and no way to change that situation. They all lost their jobs due to globalism, so they are now poor here in the US and will have to buy whatever the slave market countries ship out that sell for affordable low end prices.

  • Alleged Comment

    Been telling people for years not to eat any food from China. Now I have to tell them Vietnam too. Heck, maybe all of turd world Asia.

  • L. A. McDonough

    I would never buy canned fish from those type stores. Take fish oil supplements and eat sardines, the best fish overall for health and inexpensive in cans. (get brands from the EU or Canada) Put some hot sauce (or catsup) on it and eat with crackers.

    I have read that all that that west coast stuff from Alaska to San Diego, is contaminated by Fukushima radiation. They don’t talk about it much but that radiation pollution is still pouring into the Pacific Ocean.

    Don you are so right, and most aren’t aware because of no news coverage. I live on the Puget Sound. We have ALWAYS had huge sea star/star fish, beautiful colors, always! NONE for the past 3 years!!! They at first passed it off as a species die off, but ALL are gone! No comments after that. The last one I saw was a bright orange, misshapen and barely holding on to the pilings!
    I have eaten seafood for most of my adult life For the past 2 years, NONE! Now I only eat organic chicken, and don’t know what I’ll do next!
