It has been reported that Chinese meat processor China Yurun Food Group used recycled meat in its ham after a five-star hotel claimed that it discovered old packaging material.The food company denied the charge and said that a rare mistake occurred in its automatic packaging process when plastic film and metal buckles were found in the ham purchased by the hotel in Hefei, Anhui province, according to an official statement quoted by Xinhua news agency yesterday (May 27).
