New rule spells shutdown for illegal additive users

LOCAL food manufacturers who use illegal additives are likely to face shutdown, according to a new amendment to the city's food safety regulation, which is now under deliberation. Shanghai legislators said that using prohibited additives and non-edible materials in food production constitutes a crime. So does recycling expired food to make new one. Companies producing unqualified food valued under 10,000 yuan (US$1,430) will be fined between 2,000 yuan and 50,000 yuan. Those making unqualified food valued over 10,000 yuan will be fined five to 10 times of the actual value. Those guilty of serious violation will be forced to close down, according to the draft of the amendment.
