Qiaqia product had most mildew

QIAQIA, a famous roasted seeds and nuts brand, has come under fire again after nearly 20 percent of its snack seeds were found either mildewed or decayed.

Qiaqia had the most bad seeds among eight brands, tests of samples by a food safety-related website showed. Mildewed seeds contain aflatoxin, which can lead to liver cancer in large amounts, experts said.

In December, an undercover probe alleged that Qiaqia allowed unhygienic conditions and altered production dates in workshops making roasted seeds and nuts.

Workers in Qiaqia Food Co were found to process seeds and nuts without wearing disposable gloves and gauze masks, City Sun newspaper reported.
