The specific situation is now announced as follows:

At the same time, the market supervision department of the jurisdiction is required to record the relevant information in the food safety credit file of the producer and operator, and disclose the relevant information on the website of the supervision department according to the regulations.
1. Analysis of unqualified items:
(1) Total number of colonies
The total number of colonies is an indicator of microorganisms, not an indicator of pathogenic bacteria. Its hygienic significance is mainly as follows:First, as a sign of the degree of food contamination by microorganisms, that is, the clean state, reflecting the sanitary condition of the food in the production process; second, predicting the durability of food. Generally speaking, the greater the total number of bacterial colonies in food, the faster the food will spoil. According to the requirements of the product implementation standard DB44/T869-2011″Geographical Indication Products Cleansing Powder”, the limit value of the total number of bacterial colonies of the cleansing powder is 20,000 CFU/g. The total number of bacterial colonies in the food exceeds the standard, which will destroy the nutritional content of the food and make the food lose its edible value; it will also accelerate the spoilage of the food and may endanger human health. The reason why the total number of colonies exceeds the standard may be that the sanitary conditions of the production and processing process are not strictly controlled as required, the packaging containers are not cleaned and disinfected in place, or the product packaging is not tightly sealed, and the storage and transportation conditions are not properly controlled.
ethyl maltol is used as a flavor modifier and flavor enhancer to improve the flavor of the product. According to the provisions of GB 2760-2014″National Food Safety Standard Food Additives Use Standard”, ethyl maltol shall not be used in vegetable oil. Excessive consumption of foods that exceed the standard of ethyl maltol will have a certain impact on health. In severe cases, it may also cause headache, nausea, vomiting, and difficulty breathing. The reason for the excessive use of ethyl maltol in edible plant blend oil may be due to the illegal addition of maltol in order to improve the flavor of the product.
