A video has surfaced in which it appears to show a factory in vietnam which is producing artificial rice made from plastic. Rice is a staple in asia and fake rice is a big problem. A vietnamese resident had told a local newspaper that she selected some of the uncooked grains and put then into a frying pan. After being fried for five minutes, the grains started to melt and burn like plastic. She said plastic rice may have been mixed in the rice batch.
