A famous TV Journalist, Suthipong Thamavut, of the famous Thai TV show Kon Khon Thon, is being sued by several rice packaging company after he mentioned the names of bagged rice that is tainted with chemicals and said those who ate them, will die in five minutes. Suthipong gave no evidence to back him up. Thailand is being hit by a buffet of rumors on the quality of its rice, after several Thai press reports a “Fake News” that the USA has quarantine Thai rice for quality questions. It is un-know why Suthipong made those statements, as some of the firms mentioned are Thailand’s largest agricultural conglomerate, with global standard quality assurance. Some Thai bagged rice brand, that are organically grown, is jumping on the band-wagon and have increase their advertising that their rice is free of chemicals and is safe to eat. Several Thai bagged rice company reports massive drop in volume of sales. There has been no reports of people getting sick after eating Thai rice, however, given how politicized Thailand has become, some freak may claim illness after eating Thai rice in a few days. Yesterday, in the Democrat Party strong-hold province, bags of rice were produced, with journalist readied for the event, and the rice were rotten, with some speculation that the event was a set-up by the Democrat People.
