  Food Partner Network News On February 20, the Shandong Provincial Market Supervision Administration announced the 11th phase of food safety supervision sampling information in 2021. This sampling found edible agricultural products, catering food, and edible oil 11 batches of samples of 4 categories of food, fats and oils and its products, and beverages were unqualified.
  Five batches of samples detected food additives use problems
   Among the unqualified samples, 5 batches of samples were found to have problems with the use of food additives. Among them, two batches of samples detected ethyl maltol that did not meet the national food safety standards. They were:Shandong Liaocheng Department Store Co., Ltd. Jinding Department Store Linqing Store sold the standard Liaocheng Jinshuicheng Fatty Food Co., Ltd. The Jinshuicheng Toudao sesame oil produced by the company; the sesame oil sold by Xuzhong Shopping Center in Yuncheng County, Heze City is called Tengcong sesame oil produced by Dongming Tengcong Food Co., Ltd.
  Ethyl maltol is a food additive, a white crystalline powder with a fragrant aroma. Because ethyl maltol can reconcile, improve and enhance the original flavor of food, it is often used as a flavor modifier. At the same time, ethyl maltol also has the effect of removing off-flavors from raw materials and maintaining long-lasting fragrance. Ethyl maltol is a food spice that is allowed to be used in the”National Food Safety Standard Food Additives Use Standard” (GB 2760-2014).”National Food Safety Standard Food Additives Use Standard” (GB 2760-2014) stipulates that no food flavors and fragrances should be added to vegetable oils.
  Also, 2 batches of samples found that the residual amount of aluminum (dry sample, calculated as Al) did not meet the national food safety standards. They were:homemade fried dough sticks processed by Laoyuanjia fast food restaurant in Qihe County, Dezhou City, Dingzheng crispy pastry shop in Zhanhua District, Binzhou City processes homemade fritters.
  Potassium aluminum sulfate (also known as potassium alum) and ammonium aluminum sulfate (also known as ammonium salt) are commonly used leavening agents and stabilizers in food processing, and aluminum residues will be produced after use. The use of aluminum-containing food additives according to the standard will not cause health hazards, but long-term consumption of foods with excessive aluminum will cause the decline in exercise and learning and memory ability, and affect the intellectual development of children. The”National Food Safety Standard Food Additives Use Standard” (GB 2760-2014) stipulates that the maximum limit of aluminum residue in fried noodle products is 100mg/kg (dry sample, calculated as Al).
   In addition, the lemon-flavored beverage sold by Xinyu Store of Shandong Aikeduo Trading Co., Ltd. in Rencheng District, Jining City, which is labeled as Zhejiang Baige Industrial Co., Ltd., found that Acesulfameil did not meet the national food safety standards.
  Acesulfame K, also known as acesulfame potassium, has a taste that resembles sucrose and is 200 times sweeter than sucrose. It is a commonly used sweetener in foods. The National Food Safety Standard Food Additives Use Standard (GB 2760-2014) stipulates that the maximum use amount of Acesulfame in beverages (except 14.01 packaged drinking water) is 0.3g/kg.
  1 batch of samples detected heavy metal contamination problem
   Among the unqualified samples, one batch of samples was found to be polluted by heavy metals. This is:the peanuts sold by Zoucheng Department Store Co., Ltd., which were sold by Shandong Helaixiang Food Co., Ltd., were found to have cadmium (in Cd) Calculated) does not meet the requirements of product implementation standards.
  Cadmium (calculated as Cd) is an accumulative heavy metal element. Long-term consumption of foods with excessive cadmium may cause damage to the human kidney and liver, and also affect the immune system, and may even damage children’s high-level nerve activities. The reason for the excessive cadmium in peanuts may be that the cadmium-containing wastewater causes cadmium pollution to food raw materials, or the cadmium contained in food packaging materials migrates into the food, causing cadmium pollution of the food.

  2 batches of samples detected pesticide and veterinary drug residues
   Among the unqualified samples, 2 batches of samples were found to have pesticide residues. One of the batches:the grass carp (live) sold at Youdu Non-staple Food Supermarket in Guanxian County, Liaocheng City, found that malachite green did not meet the national food safety standards.
   Malachite green is a dye with triphenylmethane structure. It is easily soluble in water. In the process of aquaculture, it has been used as a fungicide and antiparasitic agent to prevent and control various fish diseases. The human liver is potentially carcinogenic. Long-term consumption of foods with malachite green detected may have certain effects on human health. The”List of Drugs and Other Compounds Prohibited in Food Animals” (Announcement No. 250 of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs) stipulates that malachite green is a drug that is prohibited from use in food animals.
  The other batch is:Qingzhou honey (peach) sold at Baimi Supermarket, Dongying Development Zone, Dongying City, detected deltamethrin that did not meet the national food safety standards.
  Deltamethrin is a non-systemic insecticide with contact, stomach toxicity and rapid action. Eating food generally does not cause acute deltamethrin poisoning, but long-term consumption of food that exceeds the standard of deltamethrin may also have a certain impact on human health. According to the National Food Safety Standard Maximum Residue Limits of Pesticides in Foods (GB 2763-2019), the maximum residue limit of deltamethrin in peaches is 0.05 mg/kg.
  1 batch of samples detected microbial contamination problems
   Among the unqualified samples, one batch of samples was found to have microbial contamination. The 17.5*30cm square plate used by Weihai Torch High-tech Industrial Development Zone Weihai Octopus Catering Co., Ltd. detected coliforms incompatible with food Safety national standard regulations.
   Coliform is one of the commonly used indicator bacteria for food contamination at home and abroad. The detection of coliforms in the tableware (drinks) indicates that it is more likely to be contaminated by pathogenic bacteria (such as Salmonella, Shigella, and pathogenic Escherichia coli). The”National Food Safety Standard Sterilized Meal (Drinking) Utensils” (GB 14934-2016) stipulates that coliforms must not be detected in meals (drinking) utensils. The reason for the detection of coliforms in the tableware (drinking) may be incomplete cleaning of the tableware, incomplete disinfection and sterilization, or the uncleanness of the operator or the surrounding environment, causing secondary pollution of the tableware.
   In addition to the above products, there are two batches of samples that have detected other pollutants exceeding the standard. They are:Gaomi Nanyanghe Hotel Management Co., Ltd. detected anionic synthetic detergent (dodecylbenzene) Sodium sulfonate) does not meet the national food safety standards; Tengzhou Shandong High-speed Service Area Management Co., Ltd. Jingtai Road Tengzhou Service Area sells the natural spring water produced by Yantai Shengli Agricultural Technology Development Co., Ltd. Bromate was detected Does not meet the requirements of national food safety standards.
   For the unqualified products found in the random inspection, the market supervision department of the production and operation enterprise has ordered the company to check the product flow, recall and remove the unqualified products, control the risk, file an investigation, and analyze the reasons for rectification. Qualified products have been checked and disposed of as required.
