Beware of fake eggs

by Jeremy Goldkorn, December 28, 2004

Xinhua has a report about artificial eggs that were apparently sold by a street vendor in Handan, Hebei Province. The report says that the man who took the eggs home found that the eggs’ yolk and white were all mixed up, and di not have any flavor. After inspection by “relevant departments” it was found that the dodgy eggs’ shells were made from calcium carbonate while the fake yolks were made from a mixture of gelatine, starch and other chemicals.
