Wal-Mart recalls donkey meat in China, not because it's donkey meat but because it's contaminated with fox meat

Business Insider: Wal-Mart is recalling donkey meat in China after it was found to be contaminated with other animal products.

Wal-Mart said it was recalling the meat in Jinan, the provincial capital of Shandong. The company apologized to customers and said it would provide refunds.

State media said the product -- Five Spice Donkey Meat -- had been contaminated with fox meat.

Donkey meat is a popular snack in some areas of China, although it only accounts for a tiny fraction of overall meat consumption. In 2011 China slaughtered 2.4 million donkeys, according to country's livestock industry yearbook.

Wal-Mart spokespeople in the U.S. did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
