You might never eat food in China again -- cooking oil comes from sewers

China's street food and restaurants are filled with black market oil processed from rubbish and sewers known as 'gutter oil'.
In this new documentary by Radio Free Asia, we learn the disgusting origins of the oil used to cook food in about one-tenth of China's food industry.
In this video, a woman is seen opening up a manhole to uncover sewage material she finds 'valuable', which is then processed into cheap oil sold below market rate.
The government has already banned 'gutter oil', but the practice remains fairly common.
Controversial food practices in China is not something foreign to us anymore, but eating food cooked with processed garbage is revolting on a new level.
Watch the video below.

garmin255w on Sat, 11/02/2013 - 11:00Someone asked me why Malaysian produced vegetable cooking oil must have `Halal' logo. This is the reason. Halal does not mean just Muslim slaughtered meat products, but also other food products which must be clean and fit for human consumption. I hope China will not produce gutter oil with fake halal label and export it here! Must check the country of origin........... unless that is also faked.

CaseyakaHZG on Sat, 11/02/2013 - 02:54Hm.. If u r in Shenzhen n walk along, especially after midnight, any streets that lined with restaurants, it is very common to see guys scooping gutter oil from the manhole! Indeed most of the roadside stores used these gutter oil coz it is cheap and better profit.
