Didn't know they sold chicken feet. And pig ears...buy those for my dog from time to time. And I prefer the unsalted pig intestines...The products the Chinese agency said were found to be tainted include frozen chicken from Tyson, frozen chicken feet from Sanderson Farms, frozen pork from AJC International, frozen pork breast bone from Cargill, frozen pig ears from Van Luin Foods, frozen chicken feet from Intervision and salted pig intestines from Triumph.
Chicken feet are a delicacy and if you go to any good dim sum restaurant in the USA or Canada they are on the menu. I don't go for them much myself, but the Asian customers of the dim sum eateries I have been to seem to go nuts over them.
I am making up some numbers here. US bans chinese imports, China loses 3 billion dollars worth of trade. China bans US imports, US loses 25, 000 dollars worth of trade.
China can ban all US meat imports, I don't think US economy will be impacted by it. I think it is just testing US.
