Chinese companies producing fake rice out of plastic

....certain Chinese companies are now mass producing and selling fake rice to unwitting villagers. According to a report in the Korean-languageWeekly Hong Kong, the manufacturers are blending potatoes, sweet potatoes, and plastic industrial resin to produce the imitation rice.

... eating three bowls of this fake rice is the equivalent of eating an entire plastic bag.

What has this world come to? Seriously?!
