Stabeow questions Chinese purchase of Smithfield Foods

WASHINGTON D.C. (WTVB) -  The Chinese want to buy America’s biggest pork producer, but some in Congress want to block the deal.

Foreigners own the biggest beer companies and make most of the clothes and electronics we buy.     Michigan Senator Debbie Stabenow chaired a Senate Agriculture Committee hearing yesterday questioning whether the bad practices of the Chinese will rub off on Smithfield Foods.

Smithfield got to be the biggest by being the safest, and their executives claim the Chinese want to know how they do it, because their pork industry has problems.  They deny it will lead to lowered standards in the U.S.
