Changes In China's Food & Drug Administration

China has announced its first regulations on nationwide food recalls.  This follows the widely-publicized pet food recall here in the U.S., linked to rice and wheat proteins imported from Chinese manufacturers.  The FDA has a comprehensive website on this story (and its related issues). 

In a related story, the New York Times reports that the former head of the Chinese State Food and Drug Administration was sentenced to death after pleading guilty to corruption and bribery charges.
