Chinese city stripped of fried rice world record after dish was fed to pigs

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.

The city of Yangzhou, in Jiangsu province, had its title revoked after 300 people successfully cooked 4,192kg of rice in a giant bowl last Thursday (Oct 22).

It surpassed the previous mark of 3,150kg held by the Turkish city of Bolu on Sept 27, 2014.

“The primary purpose of the Guinness World Records is meant to encourage people to challenge themselves and to surpass human limits,” it said.

“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.”
