China says tainted food found at Wal-Mart

By Associated Press


BEIJING >> Wal-Mart Stores Inc. says it has removed two food products from shelves in China after regulators found they contained banned chemicals.

The Beijing food safety regulator said it found excessive benzopyrene in sesame oil and high levels of cadmium in squid supplied by Chinese producers.

Wal-Mart said Friday the products were removed from shelves after the report. It said the company had received appropriate regulatory documents from suppliers.

The products were among seven food items cited by the agency for excessive chemicals and sold in the Chinese capital. Aside from Wal-Mart, the other outlets were Chinese.

The action came during China’s official food safety week, a period when the government typically announces a series of enforcement actions to reassure the public.
