Consumers still need to identify whether the most

Whether choking jelly is delisted or not consumers still need to recognize that as one of children's favorite foods, the glittering and translucent jelly with rich colors is undoubtedly full of temptation. However, in recent years, there have been several small-scale jelly "choking children" incidents all over the country. For this reason, the China Consumer Association issued a consumption warning that "small-scale jelly is easy to cause suffocation and death of children", which prompted the state to formulate a mandatory standard for jelly. This standard makes specific provisions on the size of different types of jellies for the first time. For cup-shaped gel jellies that are common in the market, the new standard clearly prohibits the production and marketing of small jellies with a diameter of less than 3.5 cm

it is understood that since May 1 this year, jelly that does not meet the new standard is no longer allowed to be reproduced. Jelly that has entered the market before can be sold until September 30, but must be fully delisted from October 1. So, how about the jelly sales in the market one week after the full implementation of the new standard? Has the "choking" jelly been delisted? Recently, I visited many supermarkets in Rongcheng

there are many "big" jellies in the display cabinets

on the conspicuous display cabinets of candy and chocolate in some large supermarkets, it is found that compared with the previous situation in which small jellies dominated, the size of jellies increased significantly. Look carefully at the outer packaging of these bulk jellies. Most of them are produced after May, and the standard is marked as "gb19883". At the same time, according to the regulations, the safety warning is marked in red letters on a white (or yellow) background: "do not swallow in one bite; children under the age of three should not eat them, and the elderly and children should be supervised to eat them."

on the shelves of many supermarkets, we can see that almost half of the "beverage type" jelly can be eaten by squeezing plastic packaging or inserting straw. Ms. Zhang, who is selecting jelly in front of the counter, said that her 3-year-old daughter likes to eat jelly very much, but buying "big cup" jelly is afraid to affect her children's eating. Since she heard that small jelly will "choke", most of them will choose slender suckable jelly to satisfy their children's appetites

according to the salesperson of the supermarket, the fruit jelly, which is rich in content, has also attracted some adult consumers. During the visit, we can still see some "small" jelly produced after May 1. After the actual measurement with the stationery ruler in the supermarket, it is found that the inner diameter of the cup mouth often exceeds the standard by less than half a centimeter. Mr. Lin, the consumer, reported that he had recently bought a bag of jelly with the packaging indicating that it met the new standard. When he went home to open it, he found that the indentation of the jelly on the surface of Rockwell hardness test was smaller, and the jelly was conical with "big mouth and small bottom". The bottom size must be less than 3.5cm. When a child enters the mouth, wouldn't it be very dangerous if the jelly "turned over"

in many supermarkets, we can also see small non-circular jelly at the mouth of the cup, some of which are trapezoidal in shape, some of which are designed into irregular fruit shapes. After consulting the personnel of the quality supervision department, we learned that this small jelly is regarded as an important part of the oil pan as an automobile part in the new standard as "special-shaped gel jelly". Since its inner diameter cannot be measured, it is stipulated that its single weight shall not be less than 30g

in a large supermarket located in Yangqiao Middle Road, although the size of the bulk jelly weighed and sold on the display cabinet basically meets the new standard, it is found that among the quantitatively packaged jelly on the high shelf, a small amount of "one swallow" small jelly produced before May is still sold in the newly-built affordable housing in Shanghai. The "romantic season" and "delicious backpack" of a famous brand product jelly are quantitatively packed with several to more than a dozen small jellies in large packages. Some do not meet the "3.5cm" standard, and some are less than 30g, which are all prohibited products

expect "low strength and fragile" recipe

since it is a large caliber jelly, why do you have to add safety warnings on the packaging? According to the insiders, due to the smooth surface of the jelly, children may still accidentally inhale the jelly into the "throat" and cause injury. At present, seaweed glue, which is widely used in jelly in China, is slippery and not easy to melt. Once a child's throat is blocked, it is difficult to take it out. It is dangerous regardless of its size. Therefore, experts warn that parents must not let their children eat jelly by themselves to avoid accidents

in the interview, some parents expressed the hope that the enterprise could produce "instant" jelly, so that they would not worry about "choking the child's throat and being unable to take it out"

it is reported that not long ago, China bakery and sugar products industry association, in conjunction with 9 large enterprises in the jelly industry, has discussed the research and development of low-strength fragile jelly products, and will refer to the advanced experience of other countries to improve the product formula and production process
