9 jail terms

NINE people in Guangdong Province were sentenced yesterday to jail terms ranging from six months to four years after being convicted of using a banned additive to raise or sell pigs.

All nine had pleaded guilty. Deng Yungao, a pig dealer at the Jinrong livestock trade market in Guangzhou, was found guilty of selling 95 pigs fed with the additive called "shouroujing" in Chinese in February. The chemical prevents pigs from accumulating fat but can be fatal to humans.
