The local FDA regulator of Wuhan recently launched a special campaign to inspect food vendors in the neighborhood of primary and secondary schools, kindergartens and other educational institutions.
Based on the guidance of Hubei provincial FDA authority, a special inspection team was set up to spot check restaurants and food distributors to review the inspection result of district regulators.
Food vendors close to campuses would be individually inspected. All vendors would be asked to show their registration information. Education authorities teamed up with the food safety regulators to enhance efforts to inspect grocery stores inside the campuses.
The campaign has covered over 6200 vendors, with 12 vendors having their operation approval revoked.
Education inspectors also launched events to educate students about food safety issues and are warned of the danger to have substandard food, which are mostly sold at low price to attract students. (Source: China Quality News)
