Update: April, 04/2012 - 09:36

HA NOI — Three samples of meat and animal feed from the northern provinces of Hoa Binh, Bac Ninh and Hai Duong have tested positive for "lean-meat powder", according to the Department of Livestock Husbandry on Monday.

The drug, officially known as Clenbuterol, accelerates fat burning and muscle growth, but overdoses can cause illness and, in rare cases, death.

The samples were among 136 taken from 15 coastal and northern provinces for inspection. — VNS
