Shang­hai seeks more video cam­eras in food plants

China Daily (Canada) - - FRONT PAGE -

Shang­hai will ex­pand a pi­lot pro­gram to mon­i­tor key food pro­duc­ers through video sur­veil­lance.

The city will ask “high-risk” food man­u­fac­tur­ing com­pa­nies or or­ga­ni­za­tions to in­stall more sur­veil­lance cam­eras in their key de­part­ments, such as those pro­duc­ing or pro­cess­ing meat, in­fant prod­ucts, dairy, school can­teens and large-scale food de­liv­ery ser­vices, ac­cord­ing to the Shang­hai Food and Drug Ad­min­is­tra­tion.

The mea­sure comes af­ter Shang­hai Husi Food, owned by the Chi­nese arm of US food gi­ant OSI Group, was found to have sup­plied ex­pired meat to fast-food com­pa­nies in Shang­hai and restau­rants as far away as Bei­jing and the prov­inces of Liaon­ing, He­nan, Sichuan and Shan­dong.

Since April, the city has helped in­stall video sur­veil­lance at four baby-for­mula pro­duc­ers and at all fast-food com­pa­nies with a daily de­liv­ery ca­pa­bil­ity of 300,000 por­tions at their ware­houses and work­shops where feed­ing, cooking or clean­ing are done.
