China suspends sale of drugs in unsafe capsules
China suspends sale and consumption of drugs in capsule with excessive chromium
By The Associated Press

BEIJING (AP) ' China's State Food and Drug Administration has suspended the sale of 13 drugs that it says are believed to have been made with capsules that contain excessive chromium.

State broadcaster CCTV ran a report Monday quoting the administration as saying it has started an investigation into the case.

The report says the capsules were made from industrial gelatin, which has more chromium than edible gelatin.



China suffers from a slew of food and drug safety problems and faces an uphill battle eliminating the rampant use of illegal additives and drugs, which are often churned out by makeshift chemical factories.
