"January 27, 2010 - Well Luck Co., Inc., a Jersey City, N.J., establishment, is recalling approximately 50,000 pounds of instant noodle products that were ineligible for import to the U.S., the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

Well Luck Co., Inc., is recalling the instant noodle products because they do not meet product inspection or exemption requirements for poultry, beef, and pork. The foreign inspection system of the country where the beef, poultry, and pork ingredients originated, China, has not been deemed to be equivalent as required by federal regulations.

The label on said product: No M.S.G. & No d.o.g.

I guess the saddest thing is that we sent our manufacturing base over there for their endless list of dubious products.
I hope the U.S. could reverse this trend over the next few years as part of our long recovery.

Thanks LottoMining! Yes indeed we sold them toxic derivatives they're rightfully refusing to pay for.

Indeed I hope we can bring our food manufacturing, jobs and quality control back.

I however much like the availability of many Chinese domestic foods I've used. Love shopping at international markets ... anyone who's never shopped would be amazed how many hundreds of different types of ramen noodles are available.

I'm hooked on ramen noodles. But the first thing I do is throw away the seasoning packet, to avoid msg and other bad stuff and add my own spices. My favorite is I add: chili powder, veggies and grated cheese! I drain all the water off first.

I like them too but do add at least most of the seasoning as MSG doesn't bother me. Add veggies plus cooked finely chopped meat ... quick meal.
