The food? Catfish. The location? Mississippi.
Lester Spell, Mississippi Commissioner of Agriculture and Commerce announced that samples of Chinese catfish taken from stores in Clarksdale, Starkville, Gulfport, and Meridian tested positive for banned antibiotics ciprofloxacin and enrofloxacin.
The irony here, of course, is that catfish is one of Mississippis prime cash crops, ranking behind only cotton. Delta Pride, an Indianola, Mississippi-based catfish co-op is the largest processor of freshwater fish in the world.
Its a good thing that those Kool-Aid pickles are available, or itd be hard to find anything edible down there.
