中国称日本进口酱油和咖啡受污染 China Says Japanese Soy Sauce, Coffee Imports Tainted

04 November, 2008

中国表示,食品检查人员在北部一个城市发现日本进口的酱油和咖啡含有危险物质。广东省检验检疫局星期二在其网站上说,该机构的检查人员在天津发现日本酱油的砷含量超出允许量的5倍。

这个产品安全机构还表示,日本进口咖啡的铜含量是允许量的2倍。

日本官员对于中国方面星期二的指责没有立刻做出回应。

China says food inspectors in a northern province have found dangerous substances in soy sauce and coffee imported from Japan. The Guangdong Inspections and Quarantine Bureau said on its Web site today (Tuesday) that its inspectors in the city of Tianjin discovered that Japanese soy sauce contained arsenic levels five times higher than permitted.

The product safety agency also said that imported Japanese coffee had twice the allowable level of copper.

Japanese officials had no immediate reaction to today's (Tuesday's) charges.
