Is the fish on your plate safe? If you are eating seafood in the United States, there is a very good chance it was imported, and a very low chance it was ever inspected. This could be endangering your health.
Apparently, China is beginning to take its own food safety a bit more seriously. According to Food Safety News, the Shanghai Food and Drug Administration has published a blacklist of individuals no longer permitted to work in the food industry there. These are lifetime bans. The individuals in question also received jail terms of a few years.
Food safety is a grave concern facing our nation today. Few things could have more primacy than what we put into our bodies. It is therefore disheartening to note how much food we import each year, and how much of it comes in with the most cursory of inspections, or with no scrutiny at all.
