Ten illegal food-processing sites have been closed by quality
authorities in the past two months, with two cases being handed
over to public security authorities, officials said yesterday.
The factories were making kelp, vinegar, wine and mookcakes,
said the Shanghai Bureau of Quality and Technical Supervision. In
the past two months, more than 720 stores, snack bars and
restaurants were closed for not having a business license, and more
than 9,620 kilograms of fake or low-quality food and about 24.3
tons of fake construction materials were destroyed.
