It was reported today in The Australian China has beefed up food safety measures after so many scandals. The National Peoples Standing Committee will now jail offenders for selling toxic or fake food After so many scandals such as Gutter Oil, Rat Meat Sold as Mutton or Beef, Fake Chicken Eggs, Melamine Milk and for those smug vegetarians Rice Noodles with 50 factories making them producing 500,000 kg of rotten grain noodles a day.The penalties in some cases have been increased 10-fold and the government vowed to track down companies that fail to meet the new safety standard. Who knows maybe medicine is next but it is a start still with a lot of work to do as apparently 60% of bottled water in China is considered unsafe. It was noted that the new legislation will not take affect until October! Enjoy your lunch folks, I'm off to the pub for a steak - I hope!
