Sign the White House petition to stop Chinese-processed chicken!

This petition seeks to revoke USDA permission granted to four Chinese poultry processing plants allowing those plants to import U.S.-raised and -slaughtered chicken, process it, and then export it back to America. As no on-site monitoring is mandated in China, this poses potential health and safety threats to the U.S. consumer. Chinese standards should not be interpreted to be equivalent to U.S. standards. Also at risk are American jobs at U.S. processing plants. No country-of-origin labeling is required on chicken processed in China, and individual companies will get to decide if they want to label the imported, Chinese-processed chicken as a ‘Product of China.’
