The State Food and Drug Administration On November 24 announced five batches of unqualified peanut oil on its official website. The content of Aflatoxin B1, a strong carcinogen, in a product named as Guangxi Province Guigang city Maosheng Pire Peanut Oil, was nearly exceeded 7 times by the standard value.

According to the report, from July to September in 2015, the State Food and Drug Administration supervised 200 batches of peanut oil samples, covering 112 enterprises produced oil in 16 provinces. 195 batches of samples are qualified, and 5 batches of samples are unqualified in the inspection. The unqualified rate was 2.5% in the sample. The sampling test is based on the Guidelines for the Limitation of Mycotoxins in Foods in National Food Safety Standards (GB 2761-2011), the National Food Safety Standards for Foods (GB 2762-2012), and the Sanitary Standards for Edible Vegetable Oils (GB 2716-2005).

There is a kind of toxicity from a crane in the Kongfu novel, and you will die when you eat a little bit. The toxicity of aflatoxin is 68 times that of the toxicity from a crane and is 10 times that of potassium cyanide. It is a kind of a class 1 carcinogen and its carcinogenicity is even 4000 times that of benzopyrene.

Pengpai News previously reported that aflatoxin was classified as a Class A carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), a cancer research institution of the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1993, which believes it may induce liver cancer. Aflatoxin B1 is quite common in naturally polluted foods, and it’s toxicity and carcinogenicity are also strong.
