Food Games

A convergence of three touchy issues, the Beijing Olympics, product safety and relations with the U.S.: The U.S. Olympic team is to bring all its food with it from America and will take its meals in its training camp, not the Olympic Athletes Village. It is concerned about ensuring that local food is safe and doesn’t contain any rogue drugs or other taints that could cause American athletes to fail the Games’s random drug tests. Chinese authorities, who have made elaborate preparations for months to ensure that food supplies for the Games don’t get tainted with the odd bit of anti-freeze or other toxic chemicals or growth stimulants, are “disappointed” for which read outraged. Everyone playing to type.
