From The Straits Times: "Fake rice made of plastic reported to have reached Asian shores but not Singapore's"
PETALING JAYA (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - The sacred bowl of rice that used to save lives could now be harmful - and even deadly.
Plastic rice laced with poisonous resin has reportedly reached the shores of several Asian nations. The rice is said to stay hard after it has been cooked.
The plastic rice, reportedly made from potatoes, sweet potatoes, with synthetic resin moulded into the shape of real rice, is said to have made its way into countries with large rural populations such as India, Indonesia and Vietnam.
Is China creating fake rice which includes inedible resin?
