The hottest mouthful of packaged jelly is unsafe

"Sucking" packaged jelly is unsafe

recently, Shanghai girl Chen Ruoling was unfortunately choked by jelly in her throat when eating small cup jelly. It is reported that since 2000, there have been more than ten reported cases of suffocation and death of children due to eating jelly in China. For this reason, Shanghai will issue a consumption warning for small packaged jelly. Can "one mouthful" packaged jelly be eaten

Nanjing market: "one mouthful" packaged jelly is still on sale

yesterday evening, I came to Wal Mart and other supermarkets to investigate jelly sales. On the shelves of Wal Mart Supermarkets, three brands of jelly were found. Except for the tube suction packaging, they are all large cup jelly packaging with more than 120 grams. In the bulk jelly area, three brands of jelly were found: Huikang, xufuji and xijizhilang. However, the packages are all large packages of jelly with a diameter of more than 4 cm and more than 110 grams. Many brands also have small spoons for digging jelly. Wal Mart officials told that according to the corporate standards of Wal Mart in the United States, small packaged jellies such as "one sip" are absolutely not allowed to enter the market. However, in some other supermarkets, it is found that Jinwa, Xizhilang, Jinshiyuan, Wangwang and other brands have "one bite" small package jelly sales, mostly in bulk Weighing sales. The diameter of Jinwa jelly is slightly larger than that of a dollar coin, just enough for children to swallow. There are no special instructions for eating methods on some brands of small packaged bulk jelly

Hospital experts: choking for one minute can be fatal

Director Su of the outpatient department of Nanjing Children's Hospital said that the accident of children choking on jelly occurred almost every year. Compared with choking on melon seeds, peanuts, toys and other objects, jelly is a sticky jelly, which will block the throat of children once inhaled. The swallowing reflex of children is limited, so the foreign body cannot cough up by itself. Therefore, it only takes dozens of seconds for the child to be in a coma due to lack of oxygen and die within a minute. Even if the jelly is taken out, children may have sequelae such as sluggish response, decreased hearing and language ability due to long-term hypoxia in the brain, and may even become vegetative. Director Su said that jelly contains pigment and its nutritional value is not high. There is no special benefit for children to eat it

functional departments: jelly packaging standards are missing

since there are potential safety hazards in small package jelly, has the national functional department managed this? Jiangshunxiang, director of the standardization department of Jiangsu Provincial Bureau of quality and technical supervision, told that there are two regulatory standards for jelly at present. What will happen if one is made? This involves both national industrial policies and entrepreneurs' broad domestic and foreign perspectives. The jelly health standard issued by the Ministry of health and the National Standardization Administration Committee in September 2003, and the jelly light industry standard issued by the China Light Industry Federation in November 2001. The standards mainly put forward requirements for the raw materials, color, microorganisms, food additives and other health factors of jelly. As for the shape and specification of jelly, there are no regulations in the standards. However, its products will suffer from various impacts or frictions in different environments. Director Jiang said that the industry standard can be revised five years after its release. The jelly standard in the light industry has been released for four years. The Provincial Bureau can reflect the opinions on the jelly size standard to the relevant departments as a reference for the revision of the standard. It is understood that the European Union has made specific provisions on the degree of danger warning of jelly, requiring that the package must be marked with words such as "may cause suffocation" and the first aid diagram after choking. According to the relevant regulations of FDA, the cross-section diameter of spherical jelly must exceed 4.45 cm, and that of non spherical jelly must exceed 3.18 cm. At present, the United States, Canada, the European Union, Japan, South Korea and other countries have stopped selling "one sip" jelly
