China Cracks Down On 'Unspoken Secrets'

CHINESE health chiefs involved in a nationwide safety campaign pledged yesterday to harshly punish anyone caught producing or selling illegal food additives.

The effort has already led to the arrest of four people.

"Lawless people are still using high technologies to develop food counterfeiting techniques to challenge the supervision capability of law enforcement departments," Vice Health Minister Chen Xiaohong said.

Underground markets for illegal additives operate "and "unspoken secrets" in some food industries still exist, he said, referring to practices such as adding melamine to dairy products to falsify protein test results.
