Special teams ensuring Spring Festival food safe

Unsanitary food practices were found at the MixC shopping mall in Minhang District during an inspection by the city’s food watchdog yesterday.

At the Xi Feng Lou Restaurant, workers in the kitchen did not wear masks when preparing food, a breach of food regulations, officials with the Shanghai Administration for Market Regulation found. Tests also showed poor disinfection of dishware in the restaurant.

At the Ole’ supermarket, salmon which required cooking for eating was placed together with cuts which can be eaten raw.

The administration is conducting intensified inspections of the city’s food markets ahead of the Spring Festival. It is targeting the ingredients of half-cooked nianyefan, or Chinese New Year’s Eve dinner, meat and dairy products, infant food, wine, cakes, health products and seafood, said Wang Wei, an inspector.

Large restaurants with nianyefan banquets, supermarkets, canteens and food markets are a particular focus.

Authorities have checked 5,133 food businesses and 1,052 batches of food already this year. They have found 16 violations and handled 265 complaints. Five teams established for the Spring Festival food market have inspected 55 businesses, with 19 ordered to make improvements.
