Food safety ru­mors will be tack­led

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - POLICY REVIEW -

Gov­ern­ment de­part­ments are re­quired to take the ini­tia­tive in pub­li­ciz­ing in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing food safety to pre­vent ru­mors on food safety.

This was made clear in a re­cent an­nounce­ment on pre­vent­ing ru­mors on food safety, is­sued by the Food Safety Of­fice un­der the State Coun­cil to­gether with ten other statelevel de­part­ments.

It stressed that food safety de­part­ments at all lev­els need to pub­li­cize in­for­ma­tion that the pub­lic need to know, and help this in­for­ma­tion reach the pub­lic ac­cu­rately through var­i­ous chan­nels.

It also stressed that me­dia out­lets and web­sites should re­port on food safety is­sues ac­cu­rately and ob­jec­tively.
