There’s some weird crap going on in China. Between the debate over what actually caused the outbreak of the deadly Coronavirus to their concentration camps to what constitutes food in China, leave it to the communists to live amongst the rest of the world in ambiguity.
People wonder how diseases spring up. This is how diseases spring up.
Apparently, a passenger aboard a January 27th flight from Beijing, China to Dulles International Airport in Northern Virginia had a package of literal dead birds being passed off as “pet food,” according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The passenger was planning on heading with the package to Prince George's County in Maryland from Dulles. News of the incident wasn't available until Monday.

What in the blue h-e-double-hockey sticks is going on in China? Sorry, but that’s not food. In fact, that is so not food that they’re “prohibited from importation to the United States,” because it raises the risk of “avian influenza,” more commonly known as the “Bird flu.”
“These dead birds are prohibited from importation to the United States as unprocessed birds pose a potentially significant disease threat to our nation’s poultry industries and more alarmingly to our citizens as potential vectors of avian influenza,” said Casey Durst, Director of Field Operations for CBP’s Baltimore Field Office, as the CBP report noted.
It might be time for the world to take a closer look at its business with China. It’s almost as if the crazy things that happen there and that are brought here are on purpose at this point.
