    Chickens get a toxic paint job
    Last updated: 7/19/2010 15:15
    Iron oxide yellow, a powder used to stain wood, is being used by chicken sellers to dye the birds an attractive yellow color

    Paint shop owners in Hanoi identified the dyeing chemical as the iron oxide yellow from China.

    Iron oxide sells for VND90,000-150,000 per kilogram while Thai food coloring sells for VND330,000 a kilo on Hang Buom Street.
