China will return a batch of donations from the United States to China, Beijing Evening News reported Thursday.

The three containers of these donations entered China via Tianjin Port and were sent respectively to Anhui Province in east China, and Hebei Province and the national capital Beijing in north China.

One of the container arrived in Beijing on November 4.

Some of the medical apparatuses and instruments could not be used past 1998 and some were found to have passed their probationary period after three checks in November by the State Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine of China and Beijing Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau, the paper said.

Dirty quilts and messy clothes were also included, the paper said.

Meanwhile, the Anhui Provincial Charity Association disclosed that the donations to that province were also shoddy after inspections from November 9 to 11.
