    Instead of a slap on the hand and country club prisons, they give them the death sentence.

    Ex-Chief of China Food and Drug Unit Sentenced to Death for Graft

    By DAVID BARBOZA
    Published: May 30, 2007

    SHANGHAI, May 29 — The former director of China’s top food and drug safety agency was sentenced to death on Tuesday after pleading guilty to corruption and accepting bribes, the state-controlled news media reported.

    Zheng Xiaoyu was the commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration from its founding in 1998 until mid-2005, when he was removed from his post. He was detained in February in a government investigation of the agency, which is supposed to be China’s food and drug watchdog. Two other top agency officials have also been detained.

    Mr. Zheng, 62, received the unusually harsh sentence amid heightened concern about the quality and safety of China’s food and drug system after several scandals involving tainted food and phony drugs.

    China is also under mounting pressure to overhaul its food export controls after two Chinese companies were accused this year of shipping contaminated pet food ingredients to the United States, setting off one of the largest pet food recalls in United States history.

    China’s regulators are also coming under scrutiny after diethylene glycol, a toxic chemical sometimes used in antifreeze, ended up in cough syrup and toothpaste in Latin America. In Panama, more than 100 people died last year after consuming cough medicine laced with diethylene glycol, which was shipped from China mislabeled as a harmless syrup.

    The incidents pose a huge threat to China’s growing food and drug exports and have already led to international calls for new testing and screening methods for Chinese-made goods.

    The problems are more serious in China because tens of thousands of people are sickened or killed every year as a result of rampant counterfeiting of drugs, and tainted and substandard food and drugs.

    For instance, last year 11 people died in China after being treated with an injection tainted by a poisonous chemical. Six people died and 80 others fell ill after taking an antibiotic that had been produced, according to government regulators, with a “substandard disinfectant.”

    Small drug makers in China have long been accused of manufacturing phony or substandard drugs and marketing them to the nation’s hospitals and pharmaceutical companies. And mass poisonings involving tainted food products are common.

    The Chinese government has stepped up its patrols in recent weeks, announcing measures aimed at strengthening food and drug safety and cracking down on counterfeiting operations.

    On Tuesday, the government said it was preparing to release its first regulation on nationwide food recalls. It also said it would crack down on food products that are being illegally exported, bypassing food inspections.

    As for Mr. Zheng, the government said that as director of the Food and Drug Administration, he took bribes worth about $850,000 in exchange for approving drug production licenses.

    Worried that many of those drugs may be substandard, China is reviewing more than 170,000 production licenses the agency issued in the past decade.

    It is unclear whether or when Mr. Zheng will be executed. In some cases, death sentences for officials are commuted.

    don't swallow chinese made tooth paste and of course, the pet food will kill your pet. but we won't stop buying their stuff cause our rich make lot of money reselling it to us.

    A lethal chemical called diethylene glycol (antifreeze) was found in recent shipments of tooth paste from China to the countries of the Dominican Republic, Panama and Australia. So far the FDA is not saying what brands are involved, Crest and Colgate do not import from China. So far none of the tainted toothpaste has shown up here. It would be a good idea to start reading labels and not purchase any toothpaste imported from China.

    I don't know about that. I wager you would serve America better than most of the politicans currently serving. In order to encourage "thinking" people to run for politics, it would require a purging of all present snares and hazards which appear to prevent the right people from entering politics.

    The cut throat aspect of politics discourages many from seeking office.
