Two hotpot restaurants fined over ingredient mislabeling

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Health authorities fined two hotpot restaurants during a spot check in New Taipei yesterday for violating food labeling regulations, officials said.

Thirteen hotpot restaurants in the city were inspected, and two of them were found to have failed to correctly or completely list the ingredients in the soup they used.

The inspection was apparently conducted in the wake of a food scare sparked by an investigation into the popular spicy hotpot restaurant chain, Tripodking, which has been fined NT$3.8 million by health authorities in Taichung for false advertising and other violations.

New Taipei's health department said that apart from conducting spot checks, it will also arrange talks with hotpot restaurant owners to help them better understand the regulations governing advertising, labeling and food additives.
