Assignment #10

Most tofu products contain hydrogen peroxide: TSU

A majority of tofu products sold at supermarkets and traditional markets contain hydrogen peroxide, the Taiwan Solidarity Union (TSU) claimed yesterday.

TSU spokeswoman Chou Mei-li said yesterday that product testing conducted by the party showed that eight out of 15 tofu products purchased from three of Taipei City's supermarket chains and one traditional market contained hydrogen peroxide.

Hydrogen peroxide is a weak acid that is used for bleaching and as a disinfectant. Reactions to too much hydrogen peroxide include headache, nausea, vomiting, upset stomach, diarrhea, skin eruptions or ulcers.

Hydrogen peroxide is not allowed in foods, but most of the products tested showed positive results.

The three supermarkets covered in the test were RT-Mart, Carrefour and Kuma Supermarket.

Chou said that public health was one of the party's prime concerns and called on the government to come up with a plan to more effectively manage and supervise the quality of locally produced food products.

She said that an examination of tofu products conducted by the Bureau of Health in June found 46 percent contained undesired additives, adding that they continue to be sold in supermarkets.

"This administration has completely ignored the health of consumers and turned a blind eye to enforcement of regulations," Chou said.

Question:
1. Why is a political party (the TSU) doing food tests?
2. Do you think this could be a problem with all local-made food, and not just tofu?
3. What should regular people do about this?

I think there are 2 reasons why that the TSU is doing food tests. On one hand, the TSU is doing food check for the people, on the other, they are making the people think that they care about them.

There may be some same problems like this one. I don't know, but it may be.

People should be careful of these problem. But how do you know that there was hydrogen peroxide on the tofu or the food you purchased??

*First comment, wow!

It seems that William have post his comment while I was working on my opnion.
I agree with William's comment. This should be the job that a political party supposed to work on, but why people thought they was playing a show? It showed that Taiwan's politics has already became degenerative, didn't it?

There could be lots of problems like the tofu situation. People know it but just haven't show on the news screen yet.

Be careful for yourselves and stop buying these kinds of food.

I should be the second one and also the last one who post comment.
