TBD on Ning

Suggestions anyone?

Right now take-out Chinese sounds good. Except my favorite place doesn't deliver and I don't want to go out. In the heat. And the rain. And the Tornado warning.


Do you like Chinese food?

St John the Baptist Catholic Church ran out of kolaches before I got to Fayetteville. Snook was out of kolaches also. Had to drive all the way to Ellinger to get kolaches.

Maybe you should have just baked a batch.

Kolaches do not last long around me.

Your chicken nuggets may soon come from China

The USDA lifts a ban on Chinese processed poultry exports, but it has no way to monitor how the food will be handled there.

Chickens are seen at a poultry farm in Liaocheng, China (© ChinaFotoPress/ChinaFotoPress via Getty Images)Why worry about rivers of pig carcasses, tons of feces-fed tilapia and a newfound hunger for U.S. food conglomerates in China? It's not as if its long-banned chicken imports are coming back, right?

Well, maybe it's time to worry a bit.

While many shoppers were stocking up for their Labor Day weekend cookouts on Friday, the Department of Agriculture announced it had ended a ban on Chinese chicken imports and allowed four of the country's poultry processors to ship "heat-treated/cooked" chicken to the U.S. The USDA's audit attempted "to determine whether the People's Republic of China's (PRC) food safety system governing poultry processing remains equivalent to that of the United States (U.S.), with the ability to produce products that are safe, wholesome, unadulterated, and properly labeled."

The Chinese plants passed, but even Chinese officials must have been somewhat surprised.

As Bloomberg reported, a senior Chinese policymaker involved in developing food safety standards told reporters at a press conference that essentially, China would have a tough time meeting world standards. China's food supply seldom, if ever, meets USDA standards.

That doesn't bode well for China's return to the U.S. poultry market. Bloomberg said the initial plans call for chickens to be "slaughtered in the U.S. (or another nation that's allowed to export slaughtered chicken to the U.S.), then shipped to China for processing and re-export." Unfortunately, according to The New York Times, no USDA inspectors will be allowed in the Chinese processing plants. Also, because the chicken will be processed, USDA rules say they won't need point-of-origin labeling.

Basically, not only is a country that has never been allowed to export chicken to the U.S. being allowed to process chicken without any supervision, but consumers will have no way to tell if chicken nuggets were processed in the U.S. or in China.

MSN moneyNOW sent e-mail to contacts at McDonald's (MCD +0.53%) to see if the fast-food giant's sourcing for its Chicken McNuggets and other chicken products would change as a result of the USDA ruling. We received no response and, at this point, are as much in the dark about future chicken sourcing as the average U.S. consumer.

No chicken nuggets for me. I'm having a new york strip steak on the grill tonight, and some kind of potato. Probably baked, but I gotta check if I have any sour cream, if not, maybe hash browns.

Not apitizeing but thanks for posting the chicken problem Problem.  I was thinkin' we needed to get the word uot as a "heads up" for safty sake.
