Among these products, most non-compliant imported food in October came from China (mostly frozen food), followed by Thailand(mostly vegetable) and Taiwan,China(mostly fish meat). Notably, frozen food is also the majority of the overall rejection.

  • Contains toxic or harmful substances (6%)

In addition, ChemLinked also found that Japan rejected two batches of food contact materials (all rubber products) in October due to substandard material (zinc) specifications.
