Months After Melamine, China Food Safety ‘Grim’

The Chinese Ministry of Health recently stated that food security in China remains “grim”:

A new food-safety law, approved on Saturday, attempts to fix a fragmentary regulatory system which officials believe led to recurring food problems.

“At present, China’s food-security situation remains grim with high risks and contradictions,” the said in documents handed to reporters on Monday.

“The law, which takes effect on June 1, sets quality and safety standards for products and lays out a regulatory system as well as a risk-monitoring system.”

A report by the BBC on the new legislation.
