More tainted rice and rice products were found in the Shunde district of Foshan in Guangdong province, following a similar scandal in Guangzhou last week.

Inspectors found nine batches of tainted rice during a district-wide inspection campaign, Guangzhou-based Nanfang Daily reported on Tuesday.

The tainted rice in which cadmium, a carcinogenic heavy metal, was discovered in Lecong, Leliu, Xingtan and Beijiao townships.

The inspectors in Shunde have sealed up 20 kilograms of the tainted rice for further investigation and asked the rice retailers and companies to recall another 3,513 kilograms of tainted rice.

The special campaign that targeted the rice from Hunan province was launched after authorities in Guangzhou, the capital of Guangdong province, announced they had detected eight batches of the cadmium-tainted rice over the weekend.
