中国被污染食品丑闻和动物饲料有关 China's Tainted Food Scandal Linked to Animal Feed

31 October, 2008

中国国家媒体说, 中国食品中发现的一种有毒化学物质经常被添加到动物饲料中。星期四公布的报告说,目前已经在鸡蛋和奶制品中发现的三聚氰胺,使用可能更加广泛。

其它的报导说,有关官员在问题公布于众之前约1个月就知道这个问题。新京报星期四报导,鸡蛋生产商韩伟集团9月下旬从来自一家供应商的动物饲料里发现了三聚氰胺。

Chinese state media are reporting that a harmful chemical that has been found in the country's food supply is frequently added to animal feed. The reports published Thursday suggest that the melamine contamination -- already detected in eggs and milk products -- could be more widespread.

Other reports indicate officials were aware of the problem about one month before it became public. The "Beijing News" newspaper reported Thursday that egg producer Hanwei Group discovered melamine in animal feed from a supplier in late September.
