The China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA), which tested 2,33,300 food samples nationwide throughout 2017, finding 97.6 per cent of food up to standard, an increase of 0.8 percentage points year-on-year.

According to a statement released by CFDA, the safety rate of samples of baby formula reached 99.5 per cent last year, up 0.7 percentage points year-on-year.

“China’s food safety condition has been steadily improving over the past years,” said Sun Meijun, deputy head, CFDA, noting that the safety rate has been on the rise since 2014.

“No melamine has been found in baby formula for nine consecutive years, while no Sudan-red detected in egg products for four years,” stated CFDA.

Sun, however, ordered the stepping up of supervision and preventive measures as outstanding problems in food safety remain, according to inspection results, which show the excessive use of additives, microbial pollution, pesticide residues, heavy metals and biological toxins.
