Restaurants face official test on food additives

SHANGHAI Food and Drug Administration said today that it will carry out a citywide campaign to ban local restaurants from using prohibited additives in hot pot soups and self-made drinks and flavorings.

Local eateries are required to print out the names and quantity of food additives they use in the hot pot soup and self-made drinks and flavorings for public supervision and report to the authorities before the end of May.

It is part of the national drive to root out illegal food additives from the hot pot, a popular delicacy among Chinese. The administration said more than 6,000 local restaurants have reported their food additives for official examination.

"We will check these restaurants to see if they have reported all the additives they used and test whether their additives are safe ingredients and their usage is in line with the regulation," said Du Bing from Shanghai Food and Drug Administration.
