Report on the Food Safety Levels of the 14th FINA World Championships
SHANGHAI, China (June 22) - In order to ensure food safety at the 14th FINA World Championships, Shanghai government and the Organizing Committee (OC) observe the principle of ensuring food safety by preventing contamination at source and keeping the supervised entities enclosed, and have established a food supervision system covering the entire food chain – from farm to fork – and taken appropriate measures to ensure food safety and prevent food-borne doping. Food Safety Levels of the 14th FINA World Championships are as follows:
1. Hotels where Athletes stay
Food Safety Department of the OC conducts the most rigorous supervision on the food safety of the restaurants of the hotels where athletes stay throughout the entire food chain – from farm to fork. Animal-derived food products are all supplied by the food suppliers recommended by the OC. In addition to regular inspection, the OC also inspects dozens of other prohibited substances including Clenbuterol, Ractopamine, and Albuterol on animal-derived food products. The inspection items and methods are the same as those at Beijing 2008 Olympics Games and 2010 Asian Games.
