All Chinese satay or ‘hotpot species’ that have an unclear origin will be collected and destroyed, said the director of the Department of the Food Hygiene and Safety Nguyen Cong Khan on Thursday.

The decision came following revelations made by the Chinese media, who stated that their satay might contain a toxic cancer-causing substance.

In addition, the Ministry of Health is to set up 12 investigating agencies to examine food hygiene and safety around the country. The agencies would focus on businesses that produce, process, trade and import food and species.

The Department of Food Safety and Hygiene has recommended residents to use foods and species that origins are clear. If any person is in doubt about the origins of the species they are buying, they should report this to the authorized organizations.
