‘Is there a coronavirus in ice cream?’ The second corona salmon become… The middle of the fire

Ice cream from a Chinese company where the Corona 19 virus was detected

[아시아경제 최은영 기자] China, which was caught in an emergency due to the re-proliferation of a fierce new coronavirus infection (Corona 19), was controversial as a corona 19 virus was found in ice cream following “corona salmon” last year.

On the 15th, China Daily reported that the Corona 19 virus was found in ice cream packaging produced by a food company in Tianjin. The foreign press said, “The product was already released on the market with more than 2,200 boxes.”

On the same day, Tianjin’s quarantine command department said that three of them tested positive for a nucleic acid test on an ice cream sample commissioned by the Daqiao Dao food company. After the first test on the 13th was positive, the test was positive on the next day.

Tianjin quarantine authorities immediately shut down the plant and initiated an investigation to the successive positive reactions of this ice cream packaged in three flavors of chocolate, strawberry and taro, each wrapped in a white plastic container. As a result of the survey, 4,836 boxes of chocolate flavored ice cream were produced during the period, including 1,588 boxes (6 per box), strawberry flavor 1,627 boxes, and taro flavor 1,621 boxes. It turned out to be released.

Nucleic acid tests for 1,662 factory workers have been tested negatively by 700 people. The Tianjin quarantine authorities immediately closed the plant and initiated an investigation into the import process of New Zealand milk powder and Ukrainian whey powder, which are ingredients for ice cream.

In particular, it is focusing its efforts on collecting ice cream sold on the market. The authorities disclosed this fact through an’emergency notice’ and asked the citizens who bought the product to “report immediately if there is anything wrong with the body.” The collection of ice cream that has not yet been sold and the closing of wholesale and retail stores are also being implemented.

There are voices of concern that the’Corona Ice Cream’ crisis is causing the’second frozen salmon’ crisis in China. Beijing, which recorded zero confirmed cases in June of last year, was rapidly re-proliferating due to salmon delivered to the Sinpadi market after being imported and packaged from a country infected with Corona 19.

The quarantine authorities concluded that imported frozen food was the cause of the re-proliferation, saying, “The coronavirus was found in the freezer where the salmon was located.” After that, if Corona 19 spreads due to an unclear cause in China, the frozen food was first investigated. Has been maintained.

Amid tensions from the authorities, Tianjin City Party Secretary Li Hongjong immediately visited the plant to hold an on-site meeting and ordered to prevent the spread. Until now, Tianjin has no confirmed cases on the mainland except for foreign inflow cases (16).
