Those who add inedible substances to food could find themselves behind bars for up to 15 days. Administrative detention normally refers to that imposed by police without court proceedings. This has been considered tough as other punishments stipulated in the Food Safety Law generally involves fines and revocation of certificates.Buyers also get better protection. Consumers can demand reparation of three times any loss they suffer from substandard food. Previously, only compensation of 10 times the price of the food was allowed. Substandard food can be very cheap and can cause very serious problems with consequential losses, hence the new rule guarantees that consumers can get higher compensation.Bigger fines for offenders are also on the menu. Producers may face fines of up to 30 times the value of their products, up from 10 times. If the products are worth less than 10,000 yuan (1,630 U.S. dollars), the fined can be up to 150,000 yuan, three times the previous amount.The amendment adds provisions for landlords of production sites who turn a blind eye to illegal activities on the premises, and suppliers who sell unlawful substances to producers, knowing that they will be added to foods. Their revenue can be seized and they can be fined up to 200,000 yuan.Previous Page1 2 Next PagePrevious Page1 2 Next Page8.03KRelated StoriesShanghai to enhance food production monitorRestaurants growth accelerates as mass-market outlets thrivePartnership brings together best in food safety standardsChina, NZ strengthen food safetyNew Zealand to help Chinese food giant in safeyPhotoFans queue to get their hands on Apple WatchNew cars debut 2015 Shanghai Auto ShowA mans dream: Taking mom to travel in hand-made copterTop 10 auto lookalikes in ChinaConcept cars in spotlight at Shanghai auto showShanghai fans wowed by Venucia VOWChina Economy By NumbersChina Economy by Numbers – Dec China Economy by Numbers – Nov NewsmakerTop executive of Infor has head in the cloud Zwilling stays at cutting edge of the kitchenware industryMost ViewedTodays Top NewsCNOOC Q1 sales revenue down 40 pct on falling pricesChina property loans increaseChina mulls new projects to boost investmentFans queue to get their hands on Apple WatchNew jobs in Q1 fall for first time since 2009Big new infrastructure projects in the pipelineMcDonalds to shutter 220 stores in China and USRegulator targets stock manipulation, insider tradingHot TopicsFiat SpA Peugeot SA Taxi app Internet finance Housing price Disneyland WeChatEditors PicksTop 10 auto lookalikes in China Top 10 richest men of Chinese origin Top 5 wealthiest women in tech sector Chinas Gold Apple Watch Edition sold out in an hour SpecialsBoao Forum For Asia 2015China Development Forum 2015CEO roundtable: new normal& strategies…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer | Expat Employment |Copyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
