Fake Duck Eggs Running Amok in Chinese Woman’s Kitchen
In the northeastern city of Harbin, a woman bought 20 eggs from a vendor for about 1 RMB, or 15 cents, each. When she got home, she went to use them to make soup, but discovered a strange smell emanating from the boiling water, followed by a conspicuous lack of egg yolk.
Upon taking a bite, she discovered the egg was made of plastic. She boiled and peeled another, only to discover it too was fake. Obviously upset, the woman returned to confront the man she bought them from, but he was gone.
Lesson learned. Don’t buy duck eggs except from approved duck egg distributors.
