Fox flesh found in donkey meat package at Wal-Mart store

Fox meat was found in a package that was supposed to contain donkey flesh at a Wal-Mart store in Jinan City, Shandong Province, Yangcheng Evening News reported yesterday.

A man surnamed Wang said he bought the so-called donkey meat, but thought it tasted strange.

He then asked an authorized institute that was not identified to test it. After testing, the institute concluded it was fox meat, the report said.

Wang reportedly asked for compensation from the supermarket but Wal-Mart refused. The supermarket claimed Wang had purchased 1,600 packages of donkey meat and suspected him of trying to extort money. The donkey meat producer also denied any problems, the report said.

A fox breeder surnamed Xue told the newspaper fox meat sells for about 6 yuan (US$0.99) per kilogram, which is cheaper than donkey meat.

The report said the fox meat could pose health risks to those that eat it.
