In what appears the perfect example of ‘what goes around comes around,’ Chinese authorities found more than 300 batches of substandard food imports from over 30 different countries this past summer, China Daily reports.
Most problems were in labels, additives and quality of the food, which came from 31 countries and regions, according to the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ).
The rejected food covered 17 categories, most of which are aquatic products, alcohol and dairy products, said AQSIQ’s deputy director Li Benjun.
Considering how many shady food practices authorities seem to let slide we’d hate to see what they deem “substandard.”
This large scale of questionable food imports proves that imported food may not be the beacon of hope for China’s food safety that people once thought.
