An attempt by a Chinese city to break the Guinness World Record for the largest serving of fried rice backfired when it was discovered that a part of the dish had been used to feed pigs.
It surpassed the previous mark of 3,150kg held by the Turkish city of Bolu on Sept 27, 2014.
“A lot of challengers who are so keen to challenge the Guinness World Record Book are merely after wealth and fame. Many just want to do it for fun. This trend of boastful and childish behaviour is unhealthy and useless to our social development.”
