China Closes 180 Food Plants

180 food plants have been closed by Chinese regulators after uncovering more than 23,000 food safety violations. China announced a crackdown on plants that produce food for human consumption after the scandal of the largest pet food recalls in U.S. history. The action involving some 33,000 law enforcement officers uncovered violations including "illegal food making dens, counterfeit bottled water, fake soy sauce, banned food additives, and illegal meat processing plants," according to the New York Times.
