One-third of Chinese report having problems with food safety last year

ONE in three Chinese residents encountered food safety problems in 2013, according to a report released by Shanghai Jiao Tong University today.

The report included a public poll that showed a majority of the 1,050 surveyed residents from 35 cities across China feel worried about food safety in their own cities. Expired food, counterfeit products and food failing sanity standards are the top three problems the respondents reported.

About two-thirds of the respondents said they thought the biggest food safety problems lay in production and processing procedures. Counterfeit products, illegal additives and excessive residues were the issues that most worried respondents, with more than half choosing those factors.

The report said the respondents urged the central government to improve its supervision system and enact strict laws to punish violators.
