(AP) China says 904 people were arrested for selling fake, spoiled, or adulterated meat over three months, indicating notorious food safety problems persist despite a crackdown.


State media portrayed the arrests as part of a national crackdown that will now focus on dairy products.


Xinhua News Agency said suspects sold meat that had been injected with water to increase its weight, or sold rat and fox flesh as mutton.


It said a total of 382 cases were uncovered and 20,000 tons of unsafe meat seized from January.


China's past food safety problems have included infant formula consisting of nothing more than starch and the recycling of household waste as cooking oil.
