More Chinese Food Safety Issues

Japan has a case of pesticides in Dumplings impored from China that has 10 people ill. The scandal has stopped the merger of two companies. Supposedly, this may have been deliberately caused to harm Japan China relations. Of course, the alternative is sloppy food safety that I would guess China would not want to be the cause, since this would harm the made in China label.

A friend of mine refuses to eat any food from China because he believes there is a high chance it's contaminated. Due to this he does not eat out at Chinese restaurants, because he is suspicious of where the ingredients come from.

Correction - 700 people ill per the Economist. The higher number makes more sense on why there is so much scandal about this. As well as why the Japanese and Chinese governments are interested in downplaying it.
