TAIPEI, Taiwan — An egg wholesaler Friday questioned the food authorities’ decision to seal off his warehouse over alleged dioxins contamination, accusing the government of failing to monitor the sources of the carcinogen chemicals, which experts say are created during industrial production.
The wholesaler, Chang Hsiu-ming in Miaoli, saw about 2,000 kilograms of eggs in his warehouse impounded by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which suspected that three of its suppliers’ farms in Changhua were contaminated with dioxins.
Chang said the eggs found to have contained excessive levels of dioxins from the Changhua farms had been tested back in February, and it was unreasonable to seal off his warehouse for the eggs delivered to him in April. [FULL STORY]
