China finds 15% of foods fail quality check

Nearly 15% of Chinese food products failed a recent quality check, Reuters reported the government as saying on Friday in a report.
China also said this week it would send officials to the United States to discuss product safety following a spate of scares.
However, the 39-page paper from China’s State Council Information Office sought to reassure consumers that the country’s food was safe and getting safer.
"The overall level of China’s food quality is steadily rising," stated the paper.
"China is still a developing country and the general level of food safety, including standards and industrialisation of production, still has a certain gap with developed countries."
