A SOUTH Korean food company issued a public apology today after a suspected rat’s head was found in a bag of shrimp crackers.

Nong Shim, South Korea’s largest processed food maker, said it has stopped producing the snack pending an investigation and is recalling it from shops across the country.


“All the responsibility rests with us, Nong Shim,’’ the company said.

“From the bottom of our heart, we apologise to clients who have been supporting us for the past 40 years.’‘

The Korea Food and Drug Administration (KFDA) said yesterday that a furry item found in a bag of shrimp crackers was “suspected to be the head of a rat.’‘

It said the offending item was thought to have been accidentally introduced at Nong Shim’s plant in China’s eastern city of Qingdao.

The administration said its officials had inspected Nong Shim’s local plant in the southeastern city of Busan and believe the item was unlikely to have been introduced there.

“KFDA will carry out an inspection of the China plant late this month,’’ Lee Jae-Rin, a deputy director, told AFP.

Hmm.. No.. I think a nice honey glazed BBQ, or perhaps breaded with tonkatsu sauce? That or brush with olive oil and rosemary before cooking…

Ooh! Garlic Pesto Rat!

At least they admit it and are making efforts that it won’t happen again.

Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In Western Australi

Little Accipiter loved that girl enough
He told her jokes and crazy facts
And other forum stuff

Smerk the cutest dragon:
Traveled cross the sea,
To hunt her prey in foriegn lands,
And snuggle with Acci!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Is getting married now they say
Though little Accipiter
Has yet to name the day.

What is a suspected rat head?  I think it would be fairly obvious if it is or isn’t.  I suspect that the freecycle moderator here is an idiot, but I can’t say for sure, but if I met him I could.  I’ve never met a rat head that I didn’t recognize.

After it is processed, I am sure it would be difficult to recognize.

That is something you will never hear from a major north american company.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

When life hands you lemons make apple juice. Then laugh while life tries to figure out how you did it.
