China blames foreign media for food health scares

BEIJING, July 16 (Reuters) - Foreign media have fuelled unfounded
fears about Chinese products, the nation's top quality official has
said, as China blocked a U.S. protein powder shipment while the two
countries sparred over safety worries.

The deaths of patients in Panama from mislabelled drug ingredients
from China, deadly toxins in pet food ingredients and food laced with
additives and antibiotics have fanned public anxiety in the United
States about the safety of China's surging exports.

But foreign reports about tainted Chinese foods had presented isolated
failings as the whole picture, said Li Changjiang, head of the General
Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine.

"Some foreign media, especially those based in the U.S., have wantonly
reported on so-called unsafe Chinese products. They are turning white
to black," he said, according to the China Daily on Monday.

"One company's problem doesn't make it a country's problem."

2. Now the Bush administration has something in common with China.
Everything they are blamed for is the U.S. media's fault.

3. Nobody really died, they were just "pining for the fjords"
Looks like Tony Snow has been moonlighting for the Chinese government.
