China Solves Tainted Food Mystery

It's the U.S. media's fault, of course:

China blames food fears on foreign media
China's top quality control official accused foreign media of raising unnecessary alarm about the safety of the country's food and drug exports, complaining in particular about U.S. reports...

"Some foreign media, especially those based in the U.S., have wantonly reported on so called unsafe Chinese products. They are turning white to black," said Li Changjiang, minister of the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine.

"One company's problem doesn't make it a country's problem. If some food products are below standard, you can't say all the country's food is unsafe," he said in comments Monday in the state-run China Daily.

Right, I suppose that's why they executed Zheng Xiaoyu, former director of its State Food and Drug Administration.
