Restaurants in China Add Poppies to Recipe to Retain Customers
« on: October 17, 2015, 04:29:46 PM »
Here's an article I just found that is remarkable but not too surprising. A restaraunt in China added ground poppy pods to its noodles to "encourage" repeat business. Local law says the opiate levels were high enough to cause dependence in regular customers. Kind of sinister, kind of hilarious and I wish it would happen here.

Apparently this is not an uncommon practice in that region.

At the end of the article it says that a customer is sstill in jail for failing a drug test even though he didn't know he was eating poppies in his food. Half the time I read about China is sounds like Hell.

Absolutely Dead-C,

Its like China is growing so quickly in certain areas of industry, that other parts of society--like government regulatory control--is left behind and always playing catch-up.

And a lot of the growth is raw, naked, unchecked capitalism: of course even the most honest of people/companies is tempted to play dishonestly to make more money.  By the time any backlash is about to clamp down on recent corrupt practices, those that profited, have taken the money and split to other countries.  Leaving the new suckers behind to face the music.

Talking more of contaminated baby formula; basically poisoned and dangerously diluted for no other reason that to maximize profit.  No shit was given about the worldwide consequences for other Chinese producers of baby milk, or other Chinese industries, and Chinese industry, as a whole, suffered.

If there was a proportionate growth of the Chinese equivalent of the FDA, it could have protected all of the decent industry that were harmed by a few people's greed.

When other unscrupulous businesses saw what the Baby Formula people did, and how much they made and got away with--more companies did likewise--further damaging the reputation of Chinese Industry.  Such as the raw chemical suppliers diluting chemical precursors which sickened & killed thousands of patients worldwide that used contaminated Heparin.

People are getting theirs, while the getting is good--fuck everyone else.  Capitalism is spreading malignantly in China, unchecked.

What the restaurant people did is just their small scale version of doing whatever they feel like to maximize profits.

The damage done to Chinese industry has caused their government to use capitol punishment when these greedy individuals are eventually caught.  They were short-sighted, only trying make money, not damage Chinese reputation, but the Chinese government knows full-well the ramifications and have set a strict example: mess with our reputation, and we will execute you.

Once their version of the FDA and other Gov. regulation-enforcers catch-up, there should be far fewer instances like this.

Should be.

Quote from: article

The 26-year-old diner whose urine test exposed the noodle shop’s secret is still in prison for drug use—even though further police testing suggested he tested positive as a result of the poppy-laced noodles.

“Whether it’s through self-inflicted drug use or unwitting food consumption, it’s still drug use,” says local police chief Ma Yubin told the Xi’an Evening News. “The law doesn’t draw a sharp distinction between the two.




you got that right.....JFC man.

I've heard of chefs in Sichuan province using ground poppy pods as a spice in their famous hot pots.

I don't really get this.  Even if you get sick from this, you would have no clue why you were sick, or where to turn to male it better.  It makes no sense from the perspective of getting clients addicted to them.

On the other hand, I am interested.  Any options?
