Taiwan’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA) revealed Monday that batches
of bean curds containing excessive hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) sold in traditional markets in Pingtung last week may have presumably been consumed.

The Monday bust, comprised of health authorities and police from the municipal government, found six barrels of hydrogen peroxide at the factory complex weighing 1,350 kilograms in total. [FULL STORY]
