Wary U.S. Olympians Will Bring Food to China

Sad that the US Olympics committee sees it as necessary to bring food to China, due to concerns over food safety.

This comment is a nice summary of the why:

When a caterer working for the United States Olympic Committee went to a supermarket in China last year, he encountered a piece of chicken — half of a breast — that measured 14 inches. “Enough to feed a family of eight,” said Frank Puleo, a caterer from Staten Island who has traveled to China to handle food-related issues.

“We had it tested and it was so full of steroids that we never could have given it to athletes. They all would have tested positive.”

I understand the caution, especially after 80 Japanese have reportedly fallen ill due to poisoned dumplings from China .
