Wang Fan, a Guangzhou food safety official, had this to say about the rat rumors:
“The city government of Guangzhou has not lifted the ban against the trading and eating of wild animals, including rats…”
I really don’t know who to believe. On the one hand, the idea that there’s a black market in China for flood rats smells like a ricist hoax, but on the other, most of the reporting on this phenomenon is coming from within the country.
If it’s true, then my advice to members of the Chinese media, given the hysteria the world’s feeling about food coming from China, is…?
Keep this shit on the QT!
