Chinese Poison Toothpaste
I had hesitated to report about the tainted toothpaste from China as it has been pretty much everywhere in the press. But, The Register article, besides covering the product danger, covers how corruption is dealt with in China.
While China's food and drug inspection agency is currently investigating the toothpaste suppliers, the powers that be this week sent a rather more powerful message that the country was cleaning up its act. Zheng Xiaoyu, former head of the State Food and Drug Administration, was sentenced to death by a Beijing court for corruption and dereliction of duty.
