During the Republican administration of George

JINAN Moe Harkless Jersey , March 20 (Xinhua) -- In China's latest food safety scandal, authorities are looking into allegations that one of the country's most famous sausage makers used sick pigs in its products.

The situation came to the fore on Wednesday night, when state broadcaster China Central Television (CCTV) reported that Xincheng Jinluo Group in Linyi City of the eastern Shandong Province, allowed a supplier to transport unquarantined pigs to its factory in Dezhou City.

The factory then purchased sick pigs and pigs that had suffered foot-and-mouth disease, even though the animals' ear tags and quarantine papers were printed by the sales agents themselves, reported CCTV.

In a statement released on Friday Evan Turner Jersey , Shandong's provincial bureau of animal husbandry and veterinary medicine said it will conduct a thorough investigation into the case, and will punish anyone implicated in accordance with law.

Xincheng Jinluo Group said on its website that it has halted all production at its Dezhou factory and sealed up all the products there, and that it will cooperate with investigators.

Founded in 1994, the group is one of China's leading meat product makers. It has an annual manufacturing capacity of three million tonnes, according to its website.

The scandal has made a splash on the Internet.

"I will have to give up sausages, again Clyde Drexler Jersey ," wrote a netizen with the screen name "XiaoxinGin" on microblog Sina Weibo.

"I've always preferred Jinluo sausages because I trusted the brand, but now my confidence is battered," read another comment.

China's food safety credentials have taken hit after hit in a slew of high-profile food scandals that have shaken the confidence of consumers, particularly the one in 2008 when melamine-tainted baby formula caused the deaths of at least six infants and made 300,000 ill.

Last year, Shanghai Husi Food Co. Brandon Roy Jersey , Ltd, a subsidiary of global food processor OSI Group, was revealed to be supplying out-of-date meat labeled with phony expiration dates.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 12 (Xinhua) -- The world has long been used to U.S. President Donald Trump taking a stance against multilateralism. Still, the sudden U.S. announcement Thursday to retreat from UNESCO -- the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization -- raised eyebrows worldwide.

According to a State Department statement Bill Walton Jersey , the decision "reflects U.S. concerns with mounting arrears at UNESCO, the need for fundamental reform in the organization, and continuing anti-Israel bias at UNESCO."

But the fundamental issue is the Trump administration's distrust of multilateral organizations and a growing frustration over America's place in an increasingly multipolar world.


Since taking office this January, the new White House leader has made no secret of his penchant for challenging multilateralism.

Having already scrapped the historic Paris climate deal, the comprehensive pact signed by 195 countries last year to reduce gas emissions, Trump also wants to "decertify" the landmark Iran nuclear deal. The critical Iran nuclear deal was signed two years ago with the five permanent U.N. Security Council member countries plus Germany Terry Porter Jersey , to avert the likelihood of a nuclear crisis in the Middle East.

Trump also lashed out at the UN in his first speech at the UN General Assembly in New York last month, saying, "Too often, the focus of this organization has not been on results, but on bureaucracy and process. In some cases, states that seek to subvert this institution's noble ends have hijacked the very systems that are supposed to advance them."

In the specific case of UNESCO Jusuf Nurkic Blazers Jersey , Washington has long hammered it for so-called corruption, low-efficiency and mismanagement.

As early as 1984, the Ronald Reagan administration pulled the United States out of the agency, citing what it called the U.N. body's ideological tilt toward the former Soviet Union against the West, and the U.S. stayed away till 2003.

The return, however Seth Curry Blazers Jersey , hasn't saved Washington from having its ambitions thwarted at the multilateral institution.

Since he became president, Trump has held back from appointing an ambassador to the agency. The withdrawal has been proved to be well calculated as it was announced right ahead of the election result of the UNESCO chief, according to observers.


During the Republican administration of George W. Bush, the United States stopped providing funds for UNESCO right after the organization voted to give Palestine official membership in 2011.

The decision recognized Palestine as an actual sovereign country, something unacceptable to the United States and Israel. Yet Washington has still maintained an office at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris, France.

In July C.J. McCollum Blazers Jersey , UNESCO declared the old Palestinian city of Hebron in the West Bank a World Heritage Site, a move that further irritated Washington.

As a long-time ally of Tel Aviv, Washington is also reviewing its membership of the Geneva-based U.N. Human Rights Council, citing an anti-Israel tilt within the agency.

Trump's decision has received the expected welcome in Israel, with the latter saying it too will quit UNESCO soon after the United States.


In 2011, the U.S. government announced it would halt making financial contributions to UNESCO Damian Lillard Blazers Jersey , which accounted for 22 percent of the group's whole-year budget, in reprisal for Palestine's full membership.

The government said it had to cut funds because a 1990s law prevents the U.S. from funding any UN agencies recognizing Palestine as a state.

Consequently, U.S. arrears at UNESCO have been snowballing each year. Currently, the United States owes over 500 million U.S. dollars to the organization.

The American reluctance to pay due membership fees has negatively impacted the agency's routine operations and staff employ.
