Storyline

Specialized inspections on food additives are currently being conducted across the country as a measure to ensure food safety, an official with China's top food safety regulatory body said Sunday.

Food safety remains the focus of China's quality inspection work this year, said the official with the State General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine.

"We must keep up our stance of zero tolerance of food safety leaks and keep our vigilance toward the violations of food safety. We must be responsible for consumers and help build up their confidence in us," said Zhi Shuping, director of the General Administration.

In carrying out the unified inspection arranged by the General Administration, Shanghai Municipal Bureau of Quality and Technical Supervision is required to conduct a detailed special inspection of all the 170 food additive manufacturers.

"We have two emphases in our inspection: One is to check up the procurement, receipt and inventory files of raw materials for making additives, with the focal point to check whether they have used non-edible materials prohibited by the state; and the other is to see the supply record of the material and find out whether the amount of certain substances have exceeded the national standard," said a Shanghai inspector while examining a local food additive company.

The law enforcement officers have also conducted random sampling of raw materials and finished products to send them to authoritative institutions for tests and examinations.

Meanwhile, Zhang Yong, director of the Food Safety Commission Office under the State Council, appealed for upgrading food safety with the participation from all sides.

"The limitation of our food safety regulatory resource is often strikingly contradictory to a wide spread of inspecting targets. Governments alone can not always find out and resolve food safety leaks in great numbers and large extent. Therefore, all sectors of our society should be involved to dramatically improve our capacity of securing food safety," said Zhang.

In 2011 alone, the national quality inspection departments sampled 110,000 food products, inspected 1.44 million food manufacturers and filed 28,000 cases of food safety violation, Zhang said.
