After melamine-tainted milk, drainage oil, fake eggs, colored Mantou“lean meat powder” porkshrimp washing powder etc., etc., China recently introduced another food “innovation” in Changsha, Hunan Province – garbage beef. Cattle live on garbage in a landfill till they are old enough to be butchered and served on the dinner table.  Netizens teased that these cattle are as strong as the Chinese: immune to all kinds of food poisoning.

(From Netease) In a solid refuse landfill of Changsha City lives a hordes of cattle. They were left there to fend for themselves throughout the year until they have grown big enough and can be taken away by their owners.

The landfill is located in the middle of mountains, but the strong foul smell of rotten rubbish travels miles away. Some excavators and bulldozers are working on the landfill but the cattle take no notice of them as they have a more important task: searching for food. Rubbish like rotten grapefruit skin and smelly corn are their meals. There were 18 cattle scattered around the landfill when these photos were taken.

A worker on the landfill said: “These cattle stay here day and night, eat and pooping. They sleep on the grass or in empty space, nobody comes to look after them.” The cattle will be butchered and sold to the market when they grow up. The worker said he has tasted the beef before, and commented “the taste seems different from normal beef, a little sour.”

Experts says that beef from these cattle is undoubtedly harmful to our health, because rotten garbage contains lots of germs and molds that stay in the cattle and eventually flow to the end of food chain – humans. Besides some heavy metal from electronic wastes such as Mercury can also accumulate in the beef and transfer to human body.

After the exposure of this practice, landfill officials say they will clear all the cattle out.
