Halal Food and Tainted Milk in China

Here is an interesting story coming from China, while the Tainted Milk scandal in China has resulted in the death of a few infants and hundreds of people getting sick, the milk and dairy products in China which are prepared according to Islamic dietary laws in Xinjiang are unaffected. Here is the relevant excerpt from SF Gate.

In past months, hundreds of Xinjiang residents have been sickened and an infant has died from tainted milk products imported from other regions of China. But so far, provincial officials say, Xinjiang’s domestic milk supply has remained safe in part because of halal oversight.

And they are determined to keep it that way by combining strict government inspection with the moral authority of Islam.

“The dairy industry is regulated by both religious and government institutions,” said Wei Sheng Wang, director of the government’s Xinjiang ethnic trade commission. “So we don’t have contamination at the moment.”

    Whether it is safe to be consumed or otherwise, at the end of the article there’s an interesting statement to which I believe relies heavily on the individual’s faith. :)

    Sukur Alhamdulilah.. because Islam taught us cleaniless ,
    food taken must be halal , must not cheat when carry out
    business ( by adding substances into natural product).
    Inshaallah ALLAH will guide us to be a good Muslim.
    All our effort will accept by allah. Amin

    Hope my doa all Chinese Muslim will be in good health
    & properous. Allah will prevent all the young children
    from sickness.
