Shanghai Municipal Food and Drug Administration and other related departments jointly carried out public on-site inspections of take-away food stores on Monday and Tuesday. Venues using substandard ingredients were ordered to immediately suspend operations, Jiefang Daily reported Tuesday.

The transparent investigation results were made public to customers and media. The inspection itself was split into two stages, the first an on-site fast-check conducted by a "mobile testing car" provided by take-away platform ele.me; the second a more in-depth inspection carried out by a professional food testing company.

The city also carried out random food venue inspections in 2017, and it turned out that nearly 90 percent of the stores passed, with only 10 percent using bacteria-contaminated food, said Zhang Lei, the deputy director of the division of Food Safety Supervision of Shanghai Municipal Food and Drug Administration.
