How supermarket signs can be misleading

Hot Springs Daily - Smithfield Farms, the largest pork producing farm in the USA was sold in September to China with the unanimous support of its stockholders!! The hogs will still be raised here, but slaughtered and packaged for sale there before being sent back here. This includes labels of Morrell, Eckrich, Krakus, Cudahy, Premium Ham, Cook’s and Gwaltney

The same with many chickens. They can now be shipped there, but when they come back all that needs to be labelled is that they were raised in the USA . Not that they were processed in China. Our great FDA at work again. The chickens will be all processed and most sold to fast food restaurants for sandwiches, along with schools and supermarkets. The China slaughter and processing are not nearly equal to the requirements here.

Knowing how low and terrible the standards are for factory farms and their processors in the US, it's really frightening to know that China processors are far worse.

Given the complete lack of supporting evidence, this essay appears to be complete and utter BS.
