Parents and Kids Should watch Out for the Scorpion in the Burger

These frightening food safety ads from the Beijing Women and Children’s Development Foundation are beautiful and super creepy. At first glance children play in a world populated by giant foods, but upon closer inspection we see scorpions, snakes, thumb-tacks, metal thorns and shards of glass invading the landscape.

The tagline for these frightening food safety ads is, “Do you really know about his food?” The ads, created by Beijing-based Shunya Advertising Agency are meant to promote parental caution as China has in the past suffered some unfortunate food-related incidents. However, how much food in China is tampered with and how parents will know if it is or isn’t (especially when dangers are more subtle than bug-infested sushi) is unclear.
