Poison pork is China’s newest food scandal 

China’s latest food contamination scandal is here — tainted pork from a subsidiary of the nation’s largest meat producer.

Hogs owned by the company tested positive for clenbuterol, a banned fat-burning chemical that can be dangerous to humans.

The government has launched a multiagency crackdown against illegal additives in pig feed.

So far, 12 government officials in central Henan province are implicated in an investigation of the scandal.
