China’s Hebei Province shut down nearly 30 wineries on Friday morning after wines made in the wineries were exposed on national television as adulterated, reports Xinhua news agency.
The local government acted after China Central Television Station (CCTV) showed wines made in the province’s Changli County as containing impurities on a show Thursday evening.
Hebei governor Chen Quanguo ordered an investigation late Thursday night at an emergency provincial government meeting.
At the meeting, Chen said that the wine makers in Changli County, whose wine was not up to standard, would have their production licenses revoked, and they should recall their products immediately.
