Update: April, 07/2012 - 09:17

HA NOI — No fake rice was in the capital as reported in the local media, the Health Ministry's Food Administration announced on Thursday after checking five allegedly fake rice samples.

Over the last few days, some locals claimed that the rice they bought had the smell of plastic when boiled.

Test results showed that the quality of the rice samples met Vietnamese standards. However, the department asked relevant authorities to strengthen food safety inspections at rice shops and among producers to crack down on sub-standard rice.-VNS
