Clenbuterol helps build muscle and has been used as an illegal performance-enhancing drug in athletics.

China has banned it as a livestock feed additive as it can cause nausea, dizziness, headaches and heart palpitations in humans.

The unqualified products included frozen pig heads, feet and hearts.

Among them, a batch of frozen ham from the US was found both to have mildew and to contain clenbuterol.

In August, the administration reported, a batch of frozen pig heads from Denmark was found to contain salmonella, and Coca-Cola China's imports of orange pulp and juice from Turkey were destroyed due to poor packaging and because of a breach of import regulations.
