TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – The Taoyuan City Council decided Friday to bar
products from controversial food group Ting Hsin International from its schools.
The announcement came a week after the company’s former chairman, Wei Ying-chung, was unexpectedly found not guilty in an adulterated oil scandal dating back to last year. Just as the original case, the verdict by the Changhua District Court touched off a nationwide furor.

The company produces some major brands of cooking oil, dairy products and fruit juices. [FULL STORY]
