Marler Blog Providing Commentary on Food Poisoning Outbreaks & Litigation

China is so much better with Food Safety than the United States

With a current population of 1,319,175,333, according to the China Ministry of Health, there were 431 food poisoning incidents reported in China last year, causing 13,095 illnesses, and 154 deaths.

The United States current population is 306,090,800. Our version or the Ministry of Health, the CDC, reports approximately 76,000,000 illnesses, 325,000 hospitalizations, and 5,000 deaths in the United States each year.

So, that means with a population four times that of the United Sates that China poisons 75,986,905 fewer of its citizens? Let me be the first to say – Bullshit.

    Its clear that China is always underestimating, thank God they are didn’t said people are not dying there at all. About USA probably there is overestimation too, as there is a scrupulous reporting system counting every other simple infection too.
