Insecticide Found on Chinese Dumplings

From AP:

Investigators found insecticide on the outside of six bags of Chinese-made dumplings in Japan after separate dumplings made by the same company sickened 10 people there, police said Sunday.

The police did not speculate on whether the dumplings could have been tampered with.

Officials said Japanese authorities were recalling millions of bags of dumplings and other foods made by Tianyang Food Processing Ltd., the Chinese company that Japanese officials implicated in the earlier incidents.
