Be careful Chinese New Year oranges

I think we'd better just stay away from China foodstuff, just to be safe!!!

Dear All,

Chinese new year is drawing near. When buying Chinese oranges please beware of the worms inside. These worms are very similar to the texture of the orange and therefore can only be observed if you look carefully (long sighted person may not

The Chinese government had in fact made efforts to destroy hundreds of tons of these oranges and compensate the farmers for these. But however some culprit may still sell it illegally. That's why we need to be careful.

Whether the worms are harmful to the human body or not is still questionable. But generally if small quantities are consumed it should not cause any major harm according to doctors. It is advisable to be careful about it.
