London — The 5oz (142g) patty, which cost $330,000 to produce, was dished up by its creator before an invited audience.
Scientist-turned-chef Professor Mark Post produced the burger from 20,000 tiny strips of meat grown from cow stem cells. He believes it could start a food revolution, with artificial meat products appearing in supermarkets in as little as 10 years.
A man tried to smuggle his pet turtle through security in a Chinese airport by hiding it in a KFC hamburger.
The man, identified only as Mr. Li, was about to board a flight from Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport to Beijing. Li was passing through security when an X-ray screening machines detected a few “odd protrusions” sticking out of a KFC burger that the man had packed in his bag, reported Guangzhou Daily.
Airport staff was suspicious and asked to inspect Li’s luggage, despite his pleas not to search through his belongings.
The inspection revealed a pet turtle hidden inside the burger in the Li’s bag. When asked why he had tried to hide his pet in such a way, he said that he just really wanted to travel with his “beloved” turtle by his side.After staff explained that hiding a turtle in such a manner was not going to fly, Li reluctantly agreed to allow a friend to care for his pet while he was away.
