    Wal-Mart will reimburse customers who bought the tainted "Five Spice" donkey meat and is helping local food and industry agencies in eastern Shandong province investigate its Chinese supplier, it said late on Wednesday in official posts on China's Twitter-like Weibo. The Shandong Food and Drug Administration earlier said the product contained fox meat.

    The scandal could dent Wal-Mart's reputation for quality in China's $1 trillion food and grocery market where it plans to open 110 new stores in the next few years. China is the largest grocery market in the world and is set to grow to $1.5 trillion by 2016, according to the Institute of Grocery Distribution.

    Sounds like they toss any animal they can get their hands on into the meat grinder.

    USDA approves poisonous Chinese imports so Americans can die and ease overpopulation concerns.
    Food safety horror stories abound in China. More than 50,000 children were sickened and four died in 2008 after consuming baby formula tainted with melamine, an industrial chemical. Hong Kong authorities also discovered eggs contaminated with melamine.
    In March, for reasons unknown, 12,000 dead pigs floated down a river leading to Shanghai. Avian influenza, or bird flu, re-emerged in chicken flocks this year, killing 44 people. Nearly half the rice sold in the city of Guangzhou earlier this year was tainted with cadmium, according to news accounts.
    The European Union reported that China shipped potatoes infested with insects, ginger laced with salmonella, pumpkin seeds containing glass chips and frozen calamari contaminated by arsenic to Europe last year.
    USDA officials halted imports of Chinese shrimp, eel, catfish and carp in 2007 because of high levels of illegal antibiotics and chemicals. Three years later, officials seized thousands of pounds of Chinese honey after finding illegal antibiotics. And this year, more than 500 dogs and a handful of cats died after eating jerky treats made of chicken, according to an investigation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

    When I lived on the Rez, we use to shoot a wild burro a couple times a year and cook it in the ground overnight. Then the next day after doing what was normal every day on the Rez, drinking beer all day long, we dig it up and made burritos.

    A real burrito is made with burro meat, it's where it got it's name from.

    ... Really? I'm in Mexico and have never had it with donkey meat or even seen it sold anywhere. Mexicans must have been give up on the whole donkey eating thing - or you could just be making it up. Burro is also a reference to someone who is either dumb or carries something heavy often. The second is the one that applies to burritos as they're usually loaded with beans, rice and meats much like a cart being pulled by a donkey would be. What's next? Nachos got their name from a guy named Ignacio? I'll let you figure that one out.
