    The developments are among the most dramatic steps Beijing has publicly taken to address domestic and international alarm over shoddy and unsafe Chinese goods — from pet-food ingredients and toothpaste mixed with industrial chemicals to tainted antibiotics

    Isn't that sad that people are so corrupted by money that they will put other beings at risk?!

    Wow, that's really something! Can you imagine the head of the FDA here in America getting the death penalty for approving drugs that shouldn't have been? Not saying he should or shouldn't. Just can't imagine that happening in America.

    I wonder if he was responsible for any human deaths? If it was only animals, I think the death penalty was uncalled for. Not that my opinion matters anyway. Not that I don't care about the animals, in fact my dog got sick from it, and I've had been very upset if she'd died, but I don't think he should be executed for tainting animal food.

    It wasn't just animal food he was dealing with it was alot of other items including products used by people.

    "In one instance, an antibiotic approved by Zheng’s agency killed at least 10 patients last year before it was taken off the market."
