Japan isn't doing much better than China in relation to food safety

I've never understood "food safety" issues, but I lived next to a "Heinz" plant most of my life. I've heard we had similar issues until the "Pure food & Drug" laws early in the 1900's. I guess China's just at that point now. I just can't imagine "adulterating" milk! But then again I probably can't imagine 1.3 billion people either! LOL
