“Chinese chicken”  have a new meaning, because the U.S. Department of Agriculture recently permitted four  chicken processing plants in China  to import poultry raised and slaughtered in the U.S. for processing.  They will be shipped back to the U.S. and sold on grocery shelves. Besides, these processed chickens will not need a country-of-origin label and no U.S. inspectors will be on site to inspect the meat before it is shipped back to the U.S for human consumption. This causes concern to food safety experts who are worried about the quality of chicken processed in a country infamous for avian influenza
