CHINA HIT BY NEW FLOOD OF DEAD PIGS IN RIVER

0

BEIJING: Chinese authorities have found 157 dead pigs in a river, state media said on Wednesday, a year after 16,000 carcasses were discovered in Shanghai’s main waterway, underscoring the country’s food safety problems. The dead porkers were recovered from the Gan river in Jiangxi, which supplies drinking water to the provincial capital Nanchang and is a tributary of the Yangtze, one of China’s main waterways, the official news agency Xinhua said. But tests showed that the tap water remains “safe for drinking,” it said, citing Nanchang authorities. A year ago, China was stunned by the appearance of more than 16,000 dead pigs floating along parts of the Huangpu river which flows through Shanghai—one in a series of food-safety scandals in recent years.
