A total of 904 people in China were captured during a three-month campaign involving meat-related crimes such as producing fake beef and mutton made from rat and fox, the Ministry of Public Security (MPS) said on Thursday.
Crimes also included the production of water-injected meat, the use of chemicals while processing products, as well as the selling of diseased and fake meat.
The ministry published five typical cases uncovered during the campaign.
In Wuxi, in East China’s Jiangsu Province, suspects made fake mutton from fox, mink and rat by adding chemicals. The products were sold to markets and the suspects made more than 10 million yuan ($1.62 million) from the illegal activities.
In Southwest China’s Guizhou Province, police in March busted two meat processing and selling dens and arrested six suspects.
