  • Every year two million people die from unsafe food and water around the world. Food safety experts warn these deaths may be caused by human design, and nowhere is this trend more prevalent than in China.

    Tracing the making of a bowl of wonton noodle soup, a 101 East investigation exposes the toxic stew this iconic dish has become.

    From tainted additives in noodles to growth hormones in pork, to industrial filler posing as meat, presenter Steve Chao finds that anything is possible for producers looking to cut corners and make a fast buck.

    Do you have a story about Chinese food you consumed? @AJ101East goes undercover to expose the hidden harm in China's Food Industry.

    If the Chinese officials bother to do their job instead of taking bribes then there wouldn’t be any substandard, even deadly manufactured food & medicines. These officials know better to spend those hush money on foreign medical drugs & baby formula then to buy poisonous Chinese made stuff.

    why do you think most manufacturing has been moved to china because they are lax with regulation and safety which makes things cheaper to produce. off you go Greta Thunberg to the worlds top polluter and creator of fake goods.

    I'm fortunate to have my own garden to grow a variety of vegetables, fruits, and herbs . As far as meat, don't need it. Vegetarian.

    I love Chinese food and this makes me sad that they don't use real ingredients. Here in the U.S. they use real ingredients because the government inspects the restaurants for health safety. Depending on the restaurant, the quality may be good or bad.

    The toxic foods made in China also affected the pet industry. About 5 years ago, here in Canada, many dogs developed renal failure or died after eating tainted chicken jerky. I’m not sure but I think that melanin was the culprit. Cosmetics as well frequently contain toxins & heavy metals that are absorbed through the skin.

    China has had issues with selling melamine-tainted baby formula and pet food as well as exporting it to other countries. Those have killed hundred thousands.
