What's for Dinner? In China, Fake Meat Contains Rats and Foxes

Remember all the hoopla about horse meat in beef? "That's cute," said China. Fake meat there consists of rats and foxes:

In Wuxi, in east China's Jiangsu Province, suspects made fake mutton from fox, mink and rat by adding chemicals. The products were sold to markets and the suspects made more than 10 million yuan (1.62 million U.S. dollars) from the illegal activities. [...]

According to an initial investigation, the suspects had been using hydrogen peroxide solution to process chicken claws since July 2011. With an output of 300 kg per day, suspects made more than 4 million yuan in profits.
