Dongguan puts foot down on unhygienic noodle factory

The Dongguan food authorities have ordered a rice noodle factory to shut down after photos circulated online showing employees walking barefoot through the unpackaged product, the Yangcheng Evening News reported Wednesday.

The factory in Guangdong province was told to stop output until it met food hygiene standards, the paper said.

The photos show one worker at the factory dozing on the noodles, according to the report.

All rice noodle makers have been told to review factory standards and warned that production licenses may be revoked for any violations, the report said.
