Chinese ‘filthy’ meat Markets

Having ‘a good rant’ is a great way of ridding yourself from frustrations and is strangely therapeutic.

You have been forewarned! 🙂

Definition of a wet market: A place where animals for human consumption are freshly slaughtered but not chilled, apparently Chinese have an appetite for warm meat!

Please look at this photograph below. Taken in a Chinese meat Market I’m both saddened and angry thinking to myself ‘are these shop owners f###ing insane?’ At what point do these morons pictured think it’s acceptable to sell food for human consumption in such insanitary conditions, dirty and germ-ridden unclean unhygienic environments so disgusting as to be a danger to human health! Beggars belief, and heaven knows how unclean the killing abattoirs and slaughter houses must look like because I can only imagine they’d be worse…… could animal butchery actually BE any worse?

A Chinese meat Market shop & shopkeeper

Open Shop fronts (and I apply the word ‘Shop’ loosely), rows of Market stalls devoid of glass windows keeping flies outside displaying fresh cuts of meat, tables open to the elements exposed to dirty rain droplets, unclean food ‘outlets’ populated with filthy Chinese humans wandering past no doubt handling and prodding meat joints, motorcars driving past throwing up dirt and soil, belching carbon and sulphur from their exhausts contaminating meat products, and I ask you, in what world does a Trader think this acceptable?

(Google ‘Chinese meat Market’ but be forewarned there ARE photos worse than this, then again perhaps don’t!)

Oh and not forgetting the flies and insects landing and s###ing on the meat, infecting carcasses with disease ridden soon to hatch maggots, and where’s the temperature controlled refrigerators? Where’s the obligatory chest freezers always visible to the rear of a butcher’s shop? And don’t tell me ‘all flat surfaces’ are washed down with clean water and disinfectant at the end of the day, like they are in the UK. And I’m left wondering are those cuts of meat from different species of animal, pig and boar hams hanging on skewers beside goat corpses, raw chicken legs in the same blood filled trays along with cattle steaks? And don’t get me started on pathogen infected pangolins and bats…… No wonder thousands of people are dying each and everyday in Europe and all because these deplorable Market Traders gave zero consideration to public health, the tragic consequence a COVID-19 global pandemic!

The repercussions are heart wrenching and yet totally avoidable 😦 .

I’m left asking myself are the reasons for this mindless stupidity cultural? Or are these morons just ignorant and uneducated, unaware their insanitary conditions breed infections and disease that ultimately kill humans, or do these Shopkeepers turn a blind eye to Chinese food hygiene standards (and apparently they do exist) because if the answer’s yes, then they are guilty of murder!

Incredibly and sadly, Wuhan’s wet Market is again open for business 😦 …… wild animal bush meat anyone?

  1. I’m with you. Recently, Smithfield, one of the largest manufacturers of meat (specifically pork) shut down and now a Chinese company has taken over. Needless to say, I’ve begun stockpiling bacon (as crazy as that sounds) because I have no intentions of purchasing whatever the new owners plan on selling to the public. I’m convinced someone is focused on population control.

  2. It’s disgusting. But British run intensive beef, pork and chicken farms are not much better (conditions for animals are horrific), except everything looks much better with a Tesco Finest or Waitrose label on it.
