Yet, there is no reason for consumers on the mainland to be optimistic about the food safety situation and neither is there any reason for watchdogs to relax their vigilance against substandard or unsafe food products.The impact this scandal has caused is unprecedented. That thousands of food manufacturers on the island and in the Hong Kong and Macao special administrative regions are involved is beyond our imagination because mainlanders usually believe supervision over food safety is tighter in these regions.This scandal again verifies the fact that self-discipline based on conscience is not reliable. The temptation of greater profits can always lead people astray.Earlier this month, a workshop was discovered in suburban Beijing where pigs feet were soaked in a hydrogen peroxide solution and caustic soda. This increased their weight and made them look nicer, but made them unsafe to eat.From problematic baby formula to poisonous duck eggs to chemicals used to feed pigs to make the meat leaner and to problematic cooking oil recycled from kitchen waste and grease from animal skin, as well as the recent scandal of expired meat products used by fast food restaurants, there seems to be no end to the revelations of the lengths unscrupulous producers, dealers and retailers will go to in search of greater profits.There is no telling what new ways will be conceived to adulterate the food we eat by heartless people who are willing to risk the health and lives at others in their pursuit of personal gain. But it is certain they will find some as long as they think there is more money to make.This sensational cooking oil scandal in Taiwan should serve as a reminder to the food safety watchdogs that part of their job is to narrow the space that illegal dealers can use to push unsafe or even poisonous foods into the market. It is also a reminder to quarantine officers in customs that quarantine and testing of imported food should never be slackened to allow unsafe food into the domestic market.There must be unceasing vigilance as it is a battlefield where each piece of ground that is won is of the greatest importance.Previous Page1 2 Next PagePrevious Page1 2 Next Page8.03KRelated StoriesCall to enhance global food safetySanmenxia ensures food safety for Mid-Autumn FestivalUpping the ante in food safetyGansu to carry out food safety rectification targeting childrens foodMost Viewed Todays Top NewsChina and EU can share experiencesStronger chain of collaborationTo eliminate IS, US has to back SyriaApple stretching itself thinner and thinnerFilms vis-a-vis nations global roleForum TrendsIs marriage worth it?Should parents push their children into marriage?How do you live green?Is foreign language learning mandatory?Most attractive Chinese cities for foreignersCan foreigners enjoy mooncakes?Foreigners favorite Chinese dishesColumnistsSnowden nails US lie on its economic spyingSelfies and the art of staying within limitsFeatured ContributorsChina can be more competitiveTwo wings to lift Sino-Australian tiesStar BloggersChinese traffic laws: a joke By MichaelMIve been studying the more than 1,000 traffic laws required to pass the written drivers license exam in China.
