Food Safety in France, from Mad Cow Disease to Avian Flu

Abstract : The Chinese Food Safety Law, that was voted in February 2009 and comes into effect in June, gives the Minister of Health a greater role in the management of food safety.

It follows a series of crises revealing flaws in the Chinese food safety chain, such as the tainted milk scandal in the end of 2008 causing the intoxication of 300 000 babies by melamine (Keck 2009) (...).
