China''s quality supervision authorities have blacklisted 14 companies for planning to export substandard food products and banned them from further exports.

The companies was exposed by the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (GAQSIQ) on its official website, www.aqsiq.gov.

"They will be banned from exporting food products," Lin Wei, an official with the administration, said Tuesday.

The substandard products, which included preserved seafood and fruit, were destined to be exported to Japan, Canada, the United States and the European Union, according to the administration.

Some of the products were found to contain additives such as sulphur dioxide in excess of levels set by the importing countries, or were found to be contaminated by harmful bacteria.

Lin said the government had paid great attention to recent health scares caused by substandard food products and great efforts were being made to prevent similar incidents.
