Poisonous mushroom kills dozens in China

Poisonous mushroom kills dozens in China
July 18, 2005 - sciencedaily.com

Poisonous mushrooms have killed nearly 50 people and left more than 100 seriously ill in China in the current wild mushroom picking season.

A health official in the Yunnan province in southwestern China said the toll was higher than the seasonal average. Mushroom picking is a popular summer pastime in the region, Sky News reported.

"People die every year in Yunnan from eating poisonous mushrooms, since wild mushrooms grow all over the place here," he said.

Separately, the official Chinese news agency Xinhua said consumer confidence over all kinds of food security remains below 50 percent despite improvements in recent years

Huang Hai, assistant minister of commerce, told a news conference in the capital Beijing that 8 percent of domestic food did not meet national qualification standards for food security, and that 7 percent of vegetable products exceeded the standards for pesticide residue.

He said despite improvements, the government's supervision remained weak in rural areas.
