A court in East China has jailed 46 people for selling meat from sick pigs.

Zhang Xingbing, the principal offender who illegally purchased, slaughtered the diseased pigs and sold the meat, was sentenced to six-and-a-half years in prison and fined 800,000 yuan ($129,000), Xinhua reported.

The case was heard in Wenling, a city in Zhejiang province.

Last year police arrested 65 people accused of selling meat from sick pigs and confiscated more than 10 metric tons of the product.

Forty-five other offenders and local vendors who sold diseased pigs to Zhang were also sentenced on Wednesday.

Excessive amounts of bacteria were detected in the pork products, which can pose serious health risks, the court said.

Zhang was convicted of buying more than 1,000 pigs that died from disease and selling the meat after slaughtering them between 2010 and April 2012.

Chen Guanghua, who worked at a meat factory in Wenling, was found guilty of introducing pig farmers to Zhang.

The defendants also included farmers who knowingly sold pigs killed by illness, the court said.

Meanwhile, officials in Zhejiang’s Jiaxing city have reported that 6,000 pig carcasses have now been collected, after being dumped in local rivers, apparently by pig farmers.

Shanghai authorities said on Monday they had determined from the animals’ ear tags that they came from Jiaxing, about 100 km away in Zhejiang province

Tests have showed some pigs may have died from porcine circovirus, a common pig disease.

“Among the 14 ear tags sent from Shanghai, one has been identified as belonging to a Jiaxing farmer, who has admitted he dumped the carcasses,” the city’s agriculture department was quoted as saying by people.com.cn on Wednesday.

“Seven tags cannot be identified due to the absence of information, while six still need further checks,” it said.

Jiaxing authorities said they are continuing to investigate the causes of the deaths, and who was responsible for dumping the carcasses.

    A Chinese farm admitted to dumping dead pigs into Huangpu River, which had about 6,000 bloated carcasses pulled from its water this week, state media reported.
    The labels in the ears of the pigs indicated Jiaxing City as their birthplace, according to Xinhua, the Chinese state-run news agency. The city is south of Shanghai, in the Zhejiang Province.
    Earlier, local Chinese media had suggested the dead pigs had come from the area with local officials blaming dumping on “local pig farmers who lack awareness of laws and regulations.”
    The city’s government said a total of 70,000 pigs died from “crude raising techniques and extreme weather” at the beginning of the year, according to Xinhua. But it also insisted that the collected corpses were disposed safely.

    Same way Burger King was just caught selling horse meat!
    People have no idea what they are consuming so mi stick to things that easily recognizable like the fish, shrimp, lobster and chicken.
    I eat organic so I buy wild fish but with the radiation in the water from the Fukashima (sp) and other contamination, the sea food from certain parts also infected. So it almost seems safer to eat the farm raised which defeats the purpose of eating healthy since they are genetically modified so we’re damned if we do and damned if we don’t.

    “You want to control people, control the food”.

    Any day mi leave this place, I want an organic farm in the country somewhere, go solar, be on the river and get off the grid.

    As long as you aren’t growing your own fruits/veggies or have your own livestock you are most likely eating altered fruits/veggies, engineered seafood/fish, and hormone injected meat. It doesn’t matter. Healthy/Meatless diet or not.

    Your best bet, especially if you live somewhere in NYC is to visit your local Farmer’s Market and buy produce, if you drink milk milk (or goat milk), and grassfed meat from them.

    We too dependent on our government, especially when it comes to education and nourishment, who is poisoning every last one of us. Gotta give it to the Amish people. They live their lives as natural as possible. They grow their own livestock, fruits/veggies.

    A lot of the salmon and shrimp that is sold in the Supermarkets and Sams Club are farm raised and imported from China. They have problems where they were not filtering the water adequately and the fish was basically choking on their own feces. Some of these Chinese people are very filthy. Chinese restaurants are some of the filthiest places around.

    Look at what they did to their own people with the contamination of the milk product a few years ago.
