Teas fail quality test

A BATCH of rose petal tea made and sold by Shanghai Carrefour Foods Industry Co failed quality tests administered by the city’s market watchdog.

The tea failed due to excessive lead content, the Shanghai Administration for Market Regulation said yesterday. The tea was manufactured in July by the company based in Songjiang District. Lead is toxic and its consumption can have serious health consequences, the administration warned. Another batch of ginger tea made and sold by Shanghai Juxianglou Food Co failed for excessive sulfur dioxide, with the amount detected almost triple the limit allowed by China’s national standards, the administration said. It was manufactured in June.
