There Is A Staggering Amount Of Feces In Our Food

Most Americans are eating significant amounts of feces on a regular basis without even realizing it.  You might not mind this, but most people out there would not willingly eat feces if they could avoid it.  Not only is it disgusting, but feces is also a breeding ground for all kinds of dangerous diseases.  Unfortunately, as a result of the never ending quest to cut prices even lower more of our food is being imported from overseas than ever before.  Many of those countries do not have the same health standards that we do in the United States.  In fact, many farmers in those countries actually feed feces to their fish and to their animals since it is so inexpensive.  If you are eating seafood that was imported from Asia, there is a very good chance that it was raised on pig feces.  Not only that, the truth is that a lot of the poultry that comes from Southeast Asia is also raised on pig feces.  The FDA has rejected thousands of food shipments from Asia in recent years due to fecal contamination, but the FDA inspects less than 3 percent of all imported food.  So what are we to conclude about the other 97 percent of all food imports that the FDA did not inspect?


A recent Bloomberg article entitled “Asian Seafood Raised on Pig Feces Approved for U.S. Consumers” explained that much of the seafood that is imported to the United States from Asia is actually raised on pig feces.

A lot of people were grossed out by that article, but there have been no calls for a congressional investigation.  There have been no calls to cut off food imports from Asia.  Most people will forget about all of this in a few weeks and will continue to consume large amounts of imported crap.

The Bloomberg article also talked about the fact that less than 3 percent of all imported food is inspected by the FDA…

About 27 percent of the seafood Americans eat comes from China — and the shipments that the FDA checks are frequently contaminated, the FDA has found. The agency inspects only about 2.7 percent of imported food. Of that, FDA inspectors have rejected 1,380 loads of seafood from Vietnam since 2007 for filth and salmonella, including 81 from Ngoc Sinh, agency records show. The FDA has rejected 820 Chinese seafood shipments since 2007, including 187 that contained tilapia.

If the FDA has found such widespread contamination in seafood coming from Asia in recent years, shouldn’t something be done about it?

If nothing is done, Asian seafood companies will continue to send us boatloads of seafood contaminated with feces knowing that there is more than a 97 percent chance that a particular shipment will not be inspected.

According to Michael Doyle, a microbiologist from the University of Georgia, using feces to feed fish and shrimp is quite common in Asia.  Many fish and shrimp that we eat spend their entire lives swimming around in a disgusting pool of animal feces…

It said most of the cases of contamination involving imported food in the U.S. are related to exposure to fecal matter. The group cited how, in Thailand, chicken coops with as many as 20,000 birds are often suspended in rows above ponds used for farming shrimp and fish. The sea life feeds on the chicken waste that falls in the water.

In an interview, Doyle said food producers in China regularly use untreated human and animal waste for feeding farmed fish meant for eating and for fertilizing land to grow produce.

“(Feces) is the primary nutrient for growing the tilapia (in China),” he said.

Sounds yummy, eh?

According to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, pig manure is also often fed to poultry and sheep in Southeast Asia as well…

Pig manure is important in the pig-vegetable-fish-duck chain that is common in Southeast Asia. The integrated system has long profitably used by Chinese farmers (ref. 306). 

Swine manure contains over 20% crude protein. Because of this high content of crude protein, dried fresh swine manure has been used in experimental work as poultry feed with no adverse effects on either meat or eggs. The same product has been used to advantage in pig finishing rations at the 15% level. It has also been included in sheep rations at the level of 40% (in pellets) with good results.

They say that you are what you eat.

Do you really want to eat something that has been constantly feeding on pig poop?

But feces is not just a problem in imported food.

According to the FDA, food producers in the United States are allowed to have an average of 9 mg or less of “rodent excreta pellets” in the wheat they produce per kilogram.  So, for example, 8 mg of “rodent excreta” per kilogram is perfectly fine.

And there are many other ways that our food becomes contaminated with feces.  The following is from an article that describes other ways that feces may be getting into the meat that we eat…

Slaughterhouse workers or more often machines take the hides off cattle. If workers cut the hides off by hand, they can spread feces to the meat if their knives touch the hides or tails and aren’t sanitized before touching the exposed meat again. Hide—removing machines may fling feces off the hides and onto exposed meat.

If workers accidentally break an animal’s gastrointestinal tract while removing it, feces or vomit may contaminate the meat. In beef and pork, each end of the tract needs to be sealed off with plastic to keep the contents from leaking out. Workers or tools can accidentally contaminate meat during this process.

After chickens are slaughtered, the birds are often chilled in cold water rather than in refrigerators. Feces and the pathogens in them can spread from bird to bird through the water.

Are you getting hungry yet?

But not all farmers feed poop to their animals.  Others feed them candy, sugar snacks and expired food.  The following is from a recent article by Ethan A. Huff….

The Vancouver Sun reports via Reuters that a whole new “alternative” feed market is emerging out of the ongoing crop crunch, as farmers all across the U.S. are running out of common feed options for their herds. Because corn-based feeds are now too expensive or simply unavailable, feedlot operators in Indiana, North Dakota, and elsewhere are buying leftover candy scraps, pastries, extruded cereals, gummy snacks, and even food waste to feed to their cows, which end up directly fueling the production of conventional meat and dairy products sold nationwide to American consumers.

No wonder so many Americans are deciding that it is worth it to pay more for organic food these days.

Even if you avoid all meat completely that does not mean that you are safe from fecal contamination either.  For example, according to CNN one study found that nearly half of all soda fountain machines in one area of Virginia were contaminated by fecal material…

It fizzes. It quenches. And it could also contain fecal bacteria.

Nearly half of the 90 beverages from soda fountain machines in one area in Virginia tested positive for coliform bacteria — which could indicate possible fecal contamination, according to a study published in the January issue of International Journal of Food Microbiology.

Researchers also detected antibiotic-resistant microbes and E.coli in the soda samples.

So will the day eventually come when they will try to directly feed us feces?

Unfortunately, that day may be closer than you may think.  In Japan, they are already working on a method to create “meat” out of human feces.

Yes, I know that this is hard to believe.  The following comes from an article posted on

The Tokyo Sewage service in Japan serves over 13 million people over approximately a 2,200 square kilometer area.  It approached Mitsuyuki Ikeda, a researcher from the Okayama Laboratory, with an unusual problem — it had too much “sewer mud” (also known as human excrement).

It turns out human excrement is a breeding ground for scores of bacteria.  So Mr. Ikeda cooked up an unusual solution — make food  out of the feces.

The first step is to cook the bacteria, killing them, and to extract their proteins via separation techniques according to Yahoo News.  Soy protein is added to enhance the flavor.  The meat mixture travels to a “reaction enhancer” (likely a chemical reactor of some sort) where it turns into a textured “meat” and is then extrude through an “exploder”.

The delicious “steak” is even finished with red food color to give it a comforting hue.  Mr. Ikeda claims that in initial testing people found the feces steak to taste somewhat like beef.

So would you mind eating a feces “steak”?

    Well… it SURE beats the heck out of GMOs!

  • A friend


    Sorry to rain on your parade, but the caca-steak story you quoted is almost certainly a hoax. Phony gross-out stories like this flourish because next to nobody in this country reads a language like Japanese, and the few who do won’t bother to point this out. Please read this skeptical piece:


  • Gary2

    and the stupid GOP wants to further cut regulation…what a bunch of ************** morons.

    • Colin

      You’re still here…….

    • Kevin


      I agree that if anything regulations / inspections regarding food, especially imported food should be increased. I don’t remember so many recalls on food a couple of decades back post outbreak.

      The President has executive order power and puts in department heads in the Federal Agencies. It’s obvious regardless of statements to the contrary the present administration has no desire to meaningfully and effectively clamp down. They feed from the same corporate bowl as their rivals and they don’t upset their host.

      It’s just the way it is.

    • Malcolm Reynolds

      You’re claiming it so you can certainly cite all those evil GOPers that are calling for cutting all food regulations.

      Or is it you that’s the moron? I, for one, have my answer.

    • Scott

      And the USDA has done such a great job protecting the food supply because?

  • Dave Webb

    The answer is simple. Ban all food coming from those countries that are doing this. Wait, that might take guts on the part of government officials. Sometimes you have to make a stand and say no.
    Shrimp is known as nature’s pond filter. It feeds on all the contamination in our waters. If a fisherman wants to bring a catch in and it is disapproved, all he has to do is drag the catch to clean waters and let it sit for 24 hours. The shrimp will then qualify for approval. Same goes for oysters.
    Both foods are not kosher. These foods are forbidden as unclean by the Moses Diet. Same goes for pig. I say that following a Moses type diet will make you live a lot longer and free from disease.
    I am not Jewish. But the rules concerning food should have the attention of all of us. Time and time again, we read things that confirm what I am saying about food. Pig is one of the worst. Yet we blissfully ignore the rules and eat bacon every day. Then we wonder why we get clogged arteries and heart attacks.
    Does anyone else find it ironic that the agency set to save us from bad food, is not able to keep this stuff out of the country?

    I have known about about some of these thigs for awhile. It is impossiable to keep all the mice from a grain bin. Livestock feed many times is graded that way because it has more mouse turds tham allowed for human food. I never eat any sea food from Asia. I saw a program years ago on how giant prawns were farmed in Vietnam and their ponds became poison and rice can’t be grown anylonger. Tilapia is grown in tanks and I have never eaten that fish. I don’t eat fish or prawns from a chinese restuarant. I raise my own beef and some mud does get on the out side fat of the body. You hose it off and most of that fat is tossed as we do not add it to our ground beef. I am sorry to tell you that there are germs everywhere, some bacteria even live in you hot water tank. If you lived in a sterile enviroment and then happened to touch a bad germ you immune system could not handle it. You need to be tough to handle all the stuff out there. The soil is full of nasty things as they have to live in the soil inorder to break down leaves,dead bugs,manure and all kinds of nasy stuff. Are you going to give up growing a vegetable garden? Yes we need to avoid the real nasty stuff from China and their neighbors but what about that head lettuce that a slug slithered over last night. Get real and suck it up a little as we are a lot stronger than you might think.

      All germs, bacteria and viruses had a good purpose “in the beginning of creation”. Mutation is why there are problems now. For those who don’t believe in creation, this message isn’t for you, and you are a prideful fool.

      • Gay Veteran

        you got it half right, mutations in germs alows them to evolve to become resistant to antibiotics

  • liberranter

    I agree, this is VERY disturbing. Most Amoricons are already naturally full of enough ******** not to need to consume any more from overseas.

  • Bimbam

    Wow! I’ve got to start asking where are they getting their chickens and fish from. I buy Mahi that is marked as “wild” and imported from Asia. Now I don’t what “wild” means.

  • WarriorClass III

    What is even more staggering is the amount of feces in the Federal Government.

    • LOL! Great point!

  • Graham


    This was news to me and I was totally ignorant of the facts! All imported food purchased is now being chucked in the washing machine on a 60 degree cycle with pre wash and extra rinse. Using low spin so it doesn’t end up looking like GM food after microwaving. The prawns are then hung outdoors to dry in the wind. If the birds don’t try and eat them, neither will I :)

    Note that I have a European washing machine hence all the computer controlled program options. Something I missed whilst living the the USA many years ago. The washing machine over in the US was big enough to put a car in and worked off 3 phase electricity, something we use in the UK for factory’s!

  • Graham


    No commentary yet on the first picture? Early days I guess. It reminded me of the Democratic National Convention… minus the “Obamaphones”. Just a “conservative” observation and only winding you up of course! Can’t wait until your elections to see what’s served up on the next “dish”.

    The new $100 bill may spell out the future of your financial system. Left side may depict the old, whilst right side the new. All a conspiracy of course!

  • Michael Patrick McCarty

    Wow! That’s some gut turning information to go with a cup of coffee in the morning. Egads! Would you like a muffin with your double expresso? I’ve been getting really particular about the meat and fish I eat for quite a while. I think it may be time to kick it into another gear altogether. I would really prefer not to have read this at all – but, too late! For breakfast I think I will have a pesticide free apple from our backyard tree this morning. That’s about all I think I could get down right now.

      If we go back to organic farming, 7B+ humans cannot live on on planet Earth.

  • justadad

    Wait until people find out that drinking ethanol in the form of alcoholic beverages is really drinking the waste bi-products of yeast.
    That’s right, ethanol is little more than yeast feces. No wonder it affects rational thinking.

    • Michael

      It is amazing what we are willing to put into our systems.


      • Gay Veteran

        didn’t Jesus turn water into wine?

      • Alyssa

        Remember, just because it is “all natural” or “organic” does not mean safe or good for you. Manny of the world’s worst poisons are naturally occuring.

    • liberranter

      Yeast feces are actually healthy. They add potency to the gut’s own natural bacteria and help facilitate the digestive breakdown of food.

    • Malcolm Reynolds

      Woo and then think of all them plants that are fed feces as well.

  • Piglet

    What next, Soylent Green?

    • VegasBob


      Eventually we will run out of fresh water and encounter massive worldwide food shortages.

      What do you think our enlightened authorities will do with 77 million aging baby boomers when there is no money left to fund Medicare???

      Soylent Green, here we come!!!

      • Aubryn

        That is why we now have IPAB!

    ‘Most people will forget about all of this in a few weeks and will continue to consume large amounts of imported crap.’

    Very clever Michael!

  • Tim

    The only seafood I eat are wild-caught Alaskan Salmon (only occasionally because it’s expensive) and sardines. Both are low in mercury. Mercury contamination of seafood is a big problem today.

    • Alyssa

      You THINK it’s wild caught.

  • Unfortunately, many Americans care more about food QUANTITY rather than QUALITY! That is why Monsanto can get away with GMO’s and the FDA can with chemicals, pesticides, etc… which is why we are one of the sickest nation on the planet despite being an “industrialized” nation!

    • liberranter

      The worst part of it is the strong-arm tactics used by the State to force us to consume this garbage. Those who attempt to get off of the “food grid” by cultivating organic produce from heirloom seed stock (those lucky enough to get a hold of some) or who raise their own free-range, hormone-free livestock are under full-scale assault by the Big Ag-owned feds (take your pick your armed alphabet soup agencies they use for the armed muscle) who attempt to shut down “unlicensed,” “unzoned,” or “uninspected” (again, take your pick of extra-legal bureauratic justification) family farms, gardens, and food outlets. This incident several months back is just one of many that characterizes this disturbing new trend.

      And don’t even get me started on the “Food Pyramid”…

  • Mondobeyondo

    Dinner is served! Bon appetit!!

  • HecatesMoon

    Michael….*sigh*… I still have to eat a lot of super market foods. Why would you do this to me? Why? :P

  • David C.

    At least we have a choice of foods containing feces, GMO, or the radiation fallout (from Japan)! Nothing is safe anymore!

  • David C.

    See article; Areas Where Food May Already Have Radioactive Fallout:

    This is exactly why I don’t eat chineese food…

    I don’t buy any food products from either India or China. Limited standards, no idea what they are putting in the products to save cost. We should revert to local food products and sources rather than import crap.

  • Gary2

    We get nothing but *************** from conservative biased media so why not in the food. Hey maybe that’s why conservatives are so full of *************…You are what you eat is true.

    • edwardknutson69

      you great obama the democrat hired the head of monsanto to be the FDA and refuses to label your food you progressive moron. get a clue gary

  • Its so sad I will pray am 69 years old only concerneed for those who llack this knowledge thanks for doing this article and for futurebenefits of help.

  • American Patriot

    dont eat food from other countries! my favorite word is made in USA. God bless America (soon it will be obama bless obamaland or the united states of obama)

      I stopped eating most meats, only organics & only occasionally. Hamburger which can contain meat from a 100 cows or more in just a pound, won’t touch. That’s why they have to recall so much when it is contaminated with ecoli or salmonella. I asked the butcher at Hyvee store here in X
      Carroll Iowa if he could ground up some chuck roast for me.He looked at me like I had 2 heads & told me their was hamburger in his coolers. Told him I was trying to avoid eating potential contaminated meat. “There’s been no recalls he told me. Told him wanted to avoid before after the fact. I’m going to try the local butcher to see if he has organics. The organic hamburger that Hyvee had was 6.99 for 12 ounces in their freezer. What a rip off.

  • icecicle

    Disgusting yet funny!

  • John Shilo

    One reason that they can’t feed corn to cows is that corn is being used to make ethanol, which drives up the price.

    I’m a vegetarian but after reading this article I’m worried about the cottage cheese I eat.

    • Cows eat grass :)

      And yet “all cows eat grass” … a basic no brainer learned in piano lessons … just think if every household had a cow (or goat) instead of a gas guzzling lawn mower than invariably breaks every year or two …. we’d save a lot of sweating, keep our lawns “up to code” and feed the cows. What a concept, huh? Sometimes “progress” is not what it seems, as society seems to have forgotten that we have plentiful naturally growing food (no fertilizer needed) in virtually every square foot of USA.

  • cecilhenry

    This is going to make me stop eating meat and dairy. HIT THEM IN THE POCKETBOOK AND THEY WILL CHANGE

    Africa for Africans, Asia for Asians, White Countries for Everyone?? NO

    This is White Genocide. Enough.

  • Michael Glawson

    If it’s not making us sick, I’m not sure I see why we should be too concerned at the governmental level. It’s simply not unsafe to eat fish that have been raised on other animals’ waste. Lots of fish do this naturally. If consumers just don’t like the idea, and want their fish to come from crystalline lakes unsoiled by porcine excreta, then the market should fill that need with specialty breeders. I suspect those are the same people who are offended by bones in their chicken legs.
