Heirloom Meats in China

Frozen meat from the 1970s seized in China - CNN.com

Some 800 tonnes of smuggled frozen meat have been seized by Chinese authorities, including one batch dating from the 1970s, state media reported.The meat was bound for restaurants, retailers and supermarkets in Hunan province, where it was found, and other Chinese provinces and major cities, according to a report from Xinhua, China's state news agency, on Tuesday.

The meat, which included poultry and beef, was confiscated on June 1 and was worth 10 million yuan ($1.6 million), the English-language China Daily said.

And you thought the Thousand Year Old Duck Eggs was weird . . .

Apparently, it was being smuggled in from, or through, India and other parts.

Either way, but doubtful it was frozen the entire time...

hmm if it was smuggled from the south, then they would have just left it in the K2 ranges, ambient temperatures there are colder than a meat locker.

btw - refrigeration in the 1970s in china? - even in the 90s refrigerators were not that common.
