Senior Chinese Officials Conven to Discuss Food Safety- How Messed Up Is It?

Posted by w_thames_the_d on May 11, 2011

The chinadaily reported that senior Chinese officials had been sent to Beijing for a special meeting about food safety. WTF? its 2011 and you have to call a special meeting for this? Are there not more pressing issues for uncle chicom to ponder than this? I guess it just goes to show how sever the problem is. In reality, the press often kow tow to the press so who really knows what has gone unreported. I am unsure of that answer but I bet that vaunted group of chinese leaders eshewed the milk and braised pork for some mickey D’s or Subway, at least they knew it was not contaminated.
excerpt from the Chinadaily
“BEIJING, May 11 (Xinhua) — A total of 92 senior Chinese officials met in Beijing for a ministerial-level seminar about food safety management, as the country carries out its largest crackdown on food safety hazards to date.
The officials, including vice provincial governors in charge of food safety and senior officials from central authorities, were briefed about the “severe situation” of food safety and major tasks in the coming period.”
