China Issues Stricter Stainless-Steel Safety Rules, Xinhua Says

Dec. 21 (Bloomberg) -- China announced stricter limits on metal traffic from stainless-steel products today as part of efforts to boost food safety, Xinhua News Agency reported, without citing anyone.

Acceptable lead traffic was cut to 0.01 milligram a square decimeter from 0.2, and nickel traffic was cut to 0.1 milligram a square decimeter from a product-based range of 0.2 to 0.6, Xinhua said. Limits on chromium and cadmium traffic were also raised, Xinhua reported.

Metal traffic refers how much heavy metal can be transferred from a heavy-metal container to the matter it contains, Xinhua reported.
