BEIJING - China's principal quality watchdog announced that quarantine authorities disqualified 63 batches of imported food last month.
The disqualifications were mainly in 14 food products including sugar, wine and biscuits, and involved microbial contamination and additive irregularities, said Chen Xitong, a spokesman at the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine.
Meanwhile, three batches of disqualified cosmetics were also reported last month, including perfume and mouth wash, Chen said at a press conference on Friday.
Local authorities have taken measures to return or destroy these disqualified products, the spokesman said.
