Carrefour outlets stop selling Wuchang rice

Local Carrefour outlets have stopped selling rice produced in Wuchang, Heilongjiang Province, after China Central Television broadcast a story that the rice contained an excess amount of flavouring essence earlier this week, according to Oriental Morning Post.

Other supermarkets, such as Lotus, Metro and NGS, said they won't remove the rice off shelves until the government issues an order to do so even though its sales was not "satisfactory."

The rice was once well-known for its fragrance and tenderness.

But this week CCTV said that large amounts of Wuchang rice had an "artificial" fragrance, which is not allowed according to Ministry of Health regulations.
