Decades-old meat: Frozen Meat Seized China, Some 800 tonnes of smuggled frozen meat have been seized by Chinese authorities, including one batch dating from the 1970s, state media reported.

The meat was bound for restaurants, retailers and supermarkets in Hunan province, where it was found, and other Chinese provinces and major cities, according to a report from Xinhua, China’s official news agency, on Tuesday.

The seized meat included poultry and beef and was reported to be worth 10 million yuan ($1.6 million).

Some packages were rotten and others were around 40 years old — packed and stamped at the height of China’s Cultural Revolution.

According to the Hunan Daily, a local newspaper, officials said some of the beef was from India and passed through Guangxi, a southern region bordering Vietnam.
