You might never eat food in China again -- cooking oil comes from sewers
Posted on 01 November 2013  |    |  11 comments

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.

Way to go Chinese pigs, let them produce more let them die motherfuckers
FU*K U CHINA!!
How come China pple are still alive even after consuming garbage?? There are still too many if these pests everywhere. They not only pollute
Whole world only china has news
Old news la............
Someone 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.
This is old news, no more sewer oil traders and users already
Hm.. 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.
U aren't a great man if u haven't been to the Great Wall, but so wat if I'm there? I'll be Hungry, Not Great
Many PRC ppl are well known for making sth out of nothing, but usually their outcomes are quite gross or fake ones.
There are very well-known alchemists living in China. Come on, make another Earth and live there I think Chinese ppl can do it.

Stomper Outraged was unhappy to encounter a cyclist who chided her for not giving way to him, even though he was on a pedestrian path.
