Unfortunately, the real and ugly truth is that there are no limits to what the black market will produce in the name of profit! And, ladies and gentlemen, the latest worry for the food market is the production of fake rice. Yes, you got that right, fake rice is being produced on a massive scale and is finding its way on to supermarket shelves. It seems hard to believe that rice, one of the cheapest foods in the world is being imitated, but it is happening on a large scale in Asia, and China in particular. Just take a look at the article and find out more about this.
According to the officials (after being first found in China), it has since been found in Vietnam, India and more recently in countries in Europe, although it has not been identified in the USA yet. And, you should be very careful, because the real problem with the fake rice is that it is almost undetectable from normal rice, and is being mixed up in normal everyday branded rice.
