Chinese media are reporting that authorities have shut down 180 food factories, after inspectors found industrial chemicals in products from candy to seafood.

Authorities say formaldehyde, illegal dyes and industrial
wax were used to make candy, pickles, crackers and seafood. And they discovered
some factories churning out products that used recycled or expired food. A
Chinese food safety official admitted that the problem is more widespread that
the government had said earlier.
