During the four-month crackdown on “gutter oil” (a.k.a. swill oil) in Zhejiang, Shandong and Henan Provinces, the police have detained 32 people suspected of recycling old kitchen oil illegally, and have also seized 100 tons (90 metric tons) of the potentially harmful oil. The crackdown confirmed the growing rumour that “gutter oil” has been used in restaurants. The campaign is part of an effort to clean up China’s messy food safety record following several embarrassing scandals.
