More pesticide found on four more frozen gyoza dumpling packages

Date Posted: 2008-02-14

Tokushima Prefecture officials say they’ve now discovered dichlorvos on four packages of frozen dumplings recovered from Co-op Tezukuri Gyoza after being recalled by the Japanese Consumers Cooperative Union.

While stressing the amounts of dichlorvos found was lower than the minimum permissible level, and should cause no harm to humans, officials say the latest tests raise to seven the number of contaminated packages found in Tokushima Prefecture. The co-op union in Tokyo has advised officials it gave eight recalled gyoza dumpling packages to visiting Chinese inspectors last week.

Government officials say at least 77 frozen dumpling packages produced by Tianyang Food in China, and imported to Japan by Japan Tobacco subsidiary JT Foods Company, have been gathered and are undergoing testing.

Worried consumers are increasingly telling their supermarkets they “will not use Chinese food from now one” as they continue hearing reports of product contamination. Nearly 76% of people surveyed say they’re worried, while more than half those questioned by Kyodo News say they’re not happy with the government responses to the crisis.

More than one-third of people talked to said they had been eating Chinese products, but now say they’ll avoid the foreign products.
