Vietnamese Smugglers Had 46-Year-Old Chicken Feet: Video

Police in Guangxi province announced this week they seized 22 tons of expired meat from the Vietnamese smuggling network in May, including expired chicken feet, tripe and throat that were destined for the Chinese food market."


I love chicken breasts, wings and thighs, but munching on chicken feet sounds revolting. I guess one man`s garbage is another man`s delicacy. I`d rather wash an old woman`s dirty feet than snack on chicken feet.

The confiscated chicken feet were 46 years past their sell-by-date; as far as I`m concerned as soon as a chicken is killed its feet are past their expiration date.

China is destined to become the world`s most powerful and influential country in just a few years. One day chicken feet may become as American as mom, hotdogs, apple pie and Chevrolet.
