China in food fraud move

- Last updated on GMT

China has taken action against 48 government officials as part of its crackdown on food fraud.

According to Xinhua News Agency, the Ministry of Supervision confirmed last week that eight officials have been arrested, while a further 46 have been punished for “neglect of duty”.

Ministers said the punishments related to five separate food safety incidents, including a case where 25,000kg of pork from sick pigs was bought, cooked and sold in China’s Annui Province. They added they would continue to crack down severely on food-related crime.
