my country's food safety issues are still prone to occur frequently
Beijing News (Reporter She Ying) At a regular second-quarter press conference recently held by the State Administration for Market Regulation, Liang Gang, deputy director of the Food Sampling Inspection Department, revealed that the current overall food safety situation in my country remains stable and improving.
In 2020, the market supervision department completed more than 6.38 million batches of food safety supervision and random inspections, and the overall unqualified rate was 2.31%, basically the same as in 2019.
The unqualified random inspections of Yonghui Supermarket have caused social concern recently.
In response to the high incidence of microbial contamination and excessive pesticide and veterinary drug residues in the fresh food field, Liang Gang said that my country is still in a prone and frequent period of food safety problems, and some food safety problems still need to be continuously addressed.
The data shows that last year, the unqualified rate of food samples due to microbial contamination exceeding the standard was 2.83%, accounting for 23.0% of the total unqualified samples.
The unqualified rate of random inspections due to excessive pesticide and veterinary drug residues in food was 1.79%, accounting for 35.3% of the total unqualified samples.
The unqualified rate of sampling inspection caused by the use of food additives exceeding the limit and the range is 0.98%. Although it is in a state of continuous decline, the proportion of food additives "double super" in the total amount of unqualified samples still reaches 16.2%.
In addition, the unqualified rate of random inspection of individual food categories is relatively high.
In 2020, the market supervision department will increase sampling inspections of small restaurants and snack bars. The unqualified rate of catering food sampling inspection is 5.99%. The main unqualified item is microbial contamination. The smaller the size of the catering unit, the higher the unqualified rate of random inspections. Trend: The unqualified rate of vegetable products sampling inspection is 3.45%, mainly due to the use of food additives beyond the scope and limit.
In response to the unqualified products found in the supervision and random inspection, the local market supervision departments have taken timely measures such as sealing, removing the shelves, and recalling them.
