China shuts plants that produced tainted medicine, pet food


China shuts plants that produced tainted medicine, pet food - CNN.com

"BEIJING, China (AP) --
Ahead of high-level visits by U.S. and European officials, China moved to sharpen its product safety image Friday, shutting down a chemical plant linked to dozens of deaths in Panama from tainted medicine and closing two companies tied to pet deaths in North America.

Inspectors work in a food safety inspection center in Beijing, China.

The measures come as Beijing struggles to reassure global customers that it takes food and drug safety seriously amid concerns over chemicals and toxins that have been found in its products.

The closures come months after links between the companies' products and the deaths became known, but only days before visits by European Union and U.S. officials." (more)
