Food partner online news On July 25, Shandong provincial market supervision and Administration Bureau announced the first batch of special sampling inspection of”you click and I inspect” and”you shoot and I inspect”. According to the collected wishes of the masses and the food information uploaded by consumers, the first batch of 292 batches of food samples in 23 categories were sampled, of which one batch of bean products samples was unqualified.
The sampling information shows that the unqualified products are tofu sold by xianhuifeng vegetable and meat restaurant in Xiajin County. Benzoic acid and its sodium salt (calculated by benzoic acid) do not meet the provisions of national food safety standards. The sampling results of”you take photos and I check” have been fed back to consumers by SMS.
Benzoic acid and its sodium salt (calculated by benzoic acid) are commonly used as a preservative in the food industry, which has a good inhibitory effect on mold, yeast and bacteria. Long term consumption of foods with benzoic acid and its sodium salt exceeding the standard may cause liver cumulative poisoning and endanger liver health. According to the national food safety standard for the use of food additives (GB 2760-20one4), benzoic acid and its sodium salt (calculated by benzoic acid) shall not be used in tofu. The reason why benzoic acid and its sodium salt (calculated by benzoic acid) were detected in tofu may be that the manufacturer exceeded the scope of use in order to extend the shelf life of the product or make up for the poor sanitary conditions in the production process.
For the unqualified products found in the above sampling inspection, the local market supervision department of the operator has ordered the unit to check the flow of products, recall and remove the unqualified products from the shelves, control the risks, analyze the reasons and rectify them. The unqualified products involved have been checked and disposed as required.
