3 restaurants and food outlet blacklisted

Local authorities have blacklisted three restaurants and a food store as well as six individuals and banned them from engaging in food services for up to five years for violating China’s food safety regulations.

The restaurants were found to have added poppy shells into crayfish, selling fake mutton, using swill oil in food processing or selling food made of poisonous ingredients, according to Shanghai Food and Drug Administration.

The catering license of Shanghai Yanrui Catering Co Ltd on Guyang Road was revoked and its owner banned from operating a food business for five years by Changning District food watchdog for using recycled oil to cook dishes.

It was fined over 1.2 million yuan (US$193,548) and its illegal profit of 122,900 yuan confiscated.

The Duanshi Crayfish Eatery in Xuhui District was found to have added poppy shells into crayfish dishes and soups to make them addictive. Officials in the district were tipped off by residents in June and tests found banned food substances of papaverine and narcotine in both crayfish dishes and soups.

The restaurant was fined 50,000 yuan and its catering service license was revoked while its operator was banned from the food industry for five years.

The Shanghai Haohe Catering Co Ltd in the Pudong New Area was fined 70,000 yuan and had its catering license revoked for selling frozen mutton mixed with other meat as “pure mutton” and failing to mark production date, ingredients and production permit number on meat product packages. Its legal representative was banned from doing a food business for five years.

Two individuals were jailed with reprieve and fined for selling food mixed with poisonous materials. The operator of Shanghai Yangyang Food Store in Changning was given 15 months in jail with a 18-month reprieve for the same crime.

In another case, the legal representative of Shanghai Shuzhou Medicine and Health Product was sentenced to two years in prison with a two-year reprieve and fined 30,000 yuan for selling toxic tonics that contain banned substances. Three people who bought the products and sold them to others also got jail terms and were fined.

Local residents can tip off authorities over irregularities in the food and health product industry by calling 12331.
