The world’s largest retailer, Wal-Mart says it’s considering taking legal action against "responsible parties" after DNA testing showed traces of fox meat in the donkey meat it’s been selling in China.

 

Wal-Mart has recalled the meat products after DNA testing by a government
agency in eastern Shandong province showed it contained the meat. It’s
supplied by the Dezhou Fujude Food Company also in Shandong.
