Seventy Percent Of Chinese Do Not Feel Confident About Food Safety According To Survey

January 4, 2011: 09:40 AM EST

Seventy percent of Chinese worry about food safety and think government should improve management and surveillance to protect people, says a survey by Insight China magazine and Tsinghua Media Survey Lab. Consumers are concerned about incidents like the 2008 baby formula contamination, which killed six children and made over 300,000 ill. They worry most about the health impact of puffed and fried foods popular with children, but they are also concerned about many other types of produce, processed and instant food. Other perceived threats include excessive pesticide residue and abuse of food additives. The central government is trying to improve food safety by investing in quality inspection centers and proper food hygiene, and by ensuring accurate public information.
