    Session shows food safety still high among concerns: China Daily editorial

    Food safety is undoubtedly one of the major issues that still fall short of people's ever-growing expectations for a better life. This explains why so many proposals have been put forward at the annual session of the National People's Congress this year, ranging from how to better supervise the mushrooming online food-delivery platforms to calls for perfecting the food tracking system.

    It is an issue that the government is acutely aware of. Just last month, the central authorities released a set of rules aimed at improving the accountability of local officials in this regard, making their performance on food safety a major criterion in the official assessment of their governance capabilities. And at a news conference during the current session of the top legislature on Monday, Zhang Mao, head of the State Administration for Market Regulation, vowed to slap "the strictest punishment" on violators.

    But in a vast country with millions of food factories and workshops, getting the market orderly is no easy task, and it is one made even more difficult given the shortage of law enforcement personnel and lack of knowledge about food hygiene among the public.

    That's why food safety scandals keep emerging. There have been reports about excessive chemical residues, toxic contamination, abuse of additives and sales of substandard or counterfeit food products. Faced with such a stark reality, anyone could fall victim, which has exacerbated the public's fears.

    The situation China finds itself in today may remind people of the unsanitary conditions in the Chicago meat processing industry in 1906, which the author Upton Sinclair depicted in The Jungle. Those scenes prompted US President Theodore Roosevelt to enact a series of food safety laws that transformed the country's food safety landscape.

    China enacted its first food safety law in 2009, more than a hundred years later. Given that just 40 years before China could barely feed its population, the fact that a legal framework and national standards on food safety have now been put in place and are being implemented gives reason for optimism.

    It is easy, and right, to condemn food workshops that use gutter oil in pursuit of maximum profits, or to criticize officials for failing to play their supervisory roles properly. But only alertness to potential danger can ensure safety, and that is not just the government's responsibility.

    True, the government must strengthen supervision over the entire process from production to plate, and ensure that those who break the law or fail to do their duty are held accountable.

    But it is also important that each and every one of us plays our due part, possibly starting with simple things such as raising awareness of the importance of food hygiene.

    This is shocking.


    This is so horrible. China must work hard to provide her peolepe non toxic food. People are fearing for toxic food in such huge economy should be a matter of concern for China.

    Unimaginable.

    I thought gutter oil is a history but it is very present in china even today.

    Don't post FARTS here without facts.
    Pigs can also die from infectious swine flu.

    My post is NOT about past criminal acts that have been remedied or punishment meted out.
    It IS about 250 HUMAN deaths in 2 cases just LAST MONTH from RECURRING TOXIC LIQUOR DEATHS IN INDIA.
    Why don't you WASTE YOUR TIME there with YOUR CONCERN.

    Gutter oil if recycled PROPERLY is NOT conclusively PROVEN to be harmful.

    The problem lies with how it’s refined.

    We in Singapore drink "refined" SEWER WATER, aka NEW WATER.
    It is MUCH CLEANER than drinking the SHIT WATER of The GANGES RIVER.
    And in Australia as well.

    More of us are drinking recycled sewage water than most people realise

    So the article in your own media is posting without facts? I don't know why you people are so idiots and unwilling to accept the facts exposed by your own media as if that will feed your stomachs and bring you out of hunger and save ypur country from toxic food and gutter oil.

    Some people think here that quoting some Isolated issue of India will solve their serious issue of food security. What a pity that the second largest economy of world faces food security and basic medicine issue. They do not have hygenic fto eat or proper quality of medicine or good quality of doctors or treat their patients. Dictator Xi has measerabally failed to provide basic necessities to 1.4 bn population.

    Someone from India of RAPE Capital and Open Defecation Fame, that have 250 HUMAN DEATHS from 2 incidents just last month from COMMONLY RECURRING Toxic Bootleg Liquor is telling me China failed to provide basic necessities to their huge population.

    YOU ARE THE LAUGHING STOCK OF THE WORLD.
    Please STFU before I laugh until it hurts.
    Maybe try some of that Indian Bootleg Liquor, good for you.
    Just wait a few months before TOXIC LIQUOR DEATH strike India again.

    In Singapore its rare but we have FOOD POISONING DEATHS as well.
    You GUESSED IT, it have to be an INDIAN FOOD OUTLET in Singapore.

    According to The Straits Times, those affected had eaten bento boxes prepared by the outlet for a Deepavali celebration on Nov. 6.
    Subsequently, 46 people were hospitalised, including Fadli.

    I DON'T EAT SHIT CONTAMINATED TOXIC INDIAN FOOD ANYMORE for the life of me.

    You may be thinking that with no food security and execution quota, your country will be great but first of all give some hygenic food to your people to eat so that they may not have to eat dogs.
