China made dumplings deliberately poisoned

Posted by jtsmyth8 on February 5, 2008

Japan’s health minister on Tuesday said China-made dumplings may have been deliberately poisoned with pesticide as the number of Japanese reporting illness reaches the thousands.Pesticide was detected on the package wrapping and the frozen meat dumplings, triggering a nationwide scare that led major foodmakers to recall all food made at the factory near Beijing.

‘Taking into account the circumstantial evidence we have so far, we cannot help suspecting crime,’ Health Minister Yoichi Masuzoe told reporters.

A total of 3,742 people have said they became sick after eating the dumplings or other frozen food, the health ministry said in its latest figures, although it noted only 10 were diagnosed with pesticide poisoning. (story)
