And Now, The Fake Pansit!

People seems wary of frequent fake scandals. There are just too many to mention. The latest is the allegedly fake rice immediately by fake pansit. The rice incident as of now is an isolated case, only one in Davao was confirmed. The latter is not proven yet. However, it is scary to know fake foods is growing at an alarming rate. The worst, it is happening to our staple food.

It makes me furious. These people are brilliant and yet they are using their talent to harm others. Why they can’t focus themselves on creating good things, like nutritious snacks.

Health authorities reminded people to be always cautious about the pansit (and other foods) they purchase and eat. Report if the quality is too good to be true and the prepared meal takes too long too spoil.

Now that there are too many fakes roaming around the marketplace, we should be thankful if our buys are not top of the lines. Be happy if:

1) There is one or two holes in fruit and vegetable. Showing sign of wilt and some part is already bad.

2) The rice is not of uniform sizes, dirty white colored and get spoiled after awhile.

If we go back to past a little, forging corn into rice grains is possible, the yellow corn rice. Then making the allegedly fake rice is not far from reality.
