- (Hu Min)

SOME ham products supplied to locked-down residents in Putuo District in free gift packs have been found to have excessive bacteria, Shanghai’s market regulators revealed yesterday.

The hams were procured by Changshou Road Subdistric­t authoritie­s from Shanghai Fengyun Internet

Science and Technology Co and processed by Jinan Shengdu Food Co in east China’s Shandong Province, according to the market watchdog.

The Putuo District Administra­tion for Market Regulation said that it started an investigat­ion after residents’ complaints that they suffered from diarrhoea after having the hams.

Laboratory tests found a batch of the hams out of three batches that were made on April 14 had excessive bacteria colonies based on food safety standards.

The Shanghai company is under investigat­ion, and relevant informatio­n has been forwarded to market authoritie­s in Jinan, capital of Shandong, according to the administra­tion.
