Chinese Food Scare ?

Chinese food-340-001

I bought this Tofu on March thinking to use soon though, I don’t remember

why but anyhow, it went out of sight in my fridge —– when I discovered this

a week later, it seemed perfectly alright to eat —– though, wait a moment,

Tofu used to be last less than a week even before open the package while the

water getting yellowish murky and the package got ballooned up.

—– with a serious doubt, I decided to experiment to watch this Tofu.

—– FOUR months past.  The Tofu looks exactly the same to the beginning.  

There is a kind of “Wisdom” to watch, such as a bread. = in the original plastic

bag, if the loaf of bread didn’t mold after 4 days, don’t eat and stop to buy

that bread because the food preservative is too strong.

Coincidently, there was a news in a Japanese site transcribing a news from a

Chinese paper,  Global Times ; 

【海外発!Breaking News】もはや塩も信用でき

ない国。防腐剤たっぷりの有害な塩が7年も流通。

北京の工場を摘発。

偽物の塩で7年も荒稼ぎ(画像はイメージです)

偽装問題をはじめ、食品に関する危険なニュースがあまりにも多い中国。塩ですら信用できない商品が

出回っているようだ。有害物質をたっぷりと含んだ塩を7年にわたり生産していた工場が摘発され、

波紋を広げている。

中国の英字新聞『Global Times』によれば、このほど中国・公安部の指導のもとで北京市および江蘇省の

警察が行った4か月にわたる抜き打ちの商品検査により、有害な塩を生産し ていた北京の工場が摘発され、

22人の逮捕者が出たもよう。悪質な塩は7年にわたり北京、天津、江蘇、河南、河北、安徽、および山東と

いった都市、省に流 通していたという。

毒入り塩により摘発されたのは、北京市大興区の床面積がたった8平方メートルという小さな工場。

パッケージに「食用塩」という偽のラベルが貼られていたが、中身には亜硝酸塩(防腐剤)がたっぷりと

含まれていた。1トンあたり400450元の価値しかないものを彼らは8001,000元の値で2万トンも販売

していたことから、江蘇省泰州市・公安局のZhu Jinhua氏は彼らが大変な利益をあげていたとみている。

また北京の「中国農業大学」で食物科学・栄養技術学が専門のFan Zhihong教授は、「致死量には

至らない程度の亜硫酸塩、その他の化学物質が含まれていると思われる。そうした悪質な塩は

一般消費者が購入する販売店 向けではなく、大部分が食品加工工場向けであろう」などと述べている。

——————–

Which said, a factory was discovered who has been selling an industrial chemical,

a mixture of Sodium nitrite and common salt packaged as a Cooking Salt.

My guess was that, this factory didn’t pay enough money to the local police, that all.

—– many stories of the Chinese Food Scare were too well known.    Such as that

famous Melamine Milk or Swage Oil were the name but feeeeew.    As a matter of fact,

since the scandal of Swage Oil, I stopped to buy any Chinese food using any oil, not

only Sesami Oil kind but even to Fried fishball.   (The circulation of Swage Oil for mix

was said to be too widely spread and impossible to trace).  

—– The trouble is their mentality.

    […] Since last time when I’ve talked about how I was annoyed by the Chinese Tofu, […]

    I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something that too few folks are speaking intelligently
    about. I’m very happy that I came across this in my search for something concerning this.
