China food boss sentenced to death

The former head of China’s food and drug safety regulatory body has been sentenced to death for corruption. Zheng Xiaoyu was convicted by a court in Beijing on charges of taking bribes and dereliction of duty, the official Xinhua news agency reported on Tuesday. On the same day officials have announced a series of measures for recalling unsafe food products. The news comes as China’s leaders grapple with the fallout from a string of health alerts over toxins in food and other products.

I wonder if the CEO’s of companies who poison and kill thier customers here in the United Sates are thanking their lucky stars that their parents were not born in China.
