The Beijing News reported earlier that the journalist, according to the public, went undercover into a tableware disinfection enterprise, Weijiekang Company, whose registered address is Beijing, but the actual processing plant is located in Guangyang District, Langfang City. Workers in the factory did not apply for health certificates according to the relevant regulations of the state, and food residues in the workshop were piled up in the open air. In addition, in the process of cleaning and packaging, there are some problems, such as scrubbing unwashed tableware with dirty gloves, grabbing chopsticks with bare hands, and putting workers on duty in casual clothes. When workers set the table, reporters noticed that many people wore white gloves yellow or black. The company processes more than 20,000 sets of tableware every day and sends them to Beijing, Guan, Langfang and other hotels.
On the morning of June 6, the government of Guangyang District of Langfang City organized the health bureau, the market supervision bureau, the environmental protection bureau, the industry and Information Bureau and the Beiwangxiang government to shut down the water and power supply of the enterprises concerned and seize them on the spot. At the same time, the health bureau sent the tableware inside the workshop for inspection.

According to the relevant person in charge of Beijing Daxing District Market Supervision Bureau, on June 6, law enforcement officers of Daxing District Market Supervision Bureau inspected the registration site of Weijiekang Company, and found that the original building of the address had been demolished, and the company was no longer operating in the registered residence. After further investigation, it was found that the company authorized the cleaning and disinfection agent processing point located in Guangyang District of Langfang, Hebei Province to clean and process disinfected tableware. After the exposure of the report, the processing contract between the two sides has been terminated, and Daxing District has also included Weijiekang Company in the list of abnormal operations. At the same time, all food and beverage units within the jurisdiction are notified that the use and purchase of disinfection tableware provided by Weijiekang Company is prohibited.
The reporter of Beijing News learned that the enterprise that provides the processing service for Weijiekang is called Beiwang Township Super Clean Tableware Disinfection Service Department, Guangyang District, Langfang City. This factory is the one sealed up by Guangyang District Government.
Today (June 13), the Beijing News reporter learned from the Guangyang District Government of Langfang City that, after on-site inspection and testing by relevant departments, the factory has problems such as irregular cleaning operation, dirty odor, poor sanitary conditions and no self-inspection equipment. The wastewater produced affects the lives of the surrounding residents, and the environment of the factory area is seriously substandard. Previously, the Health Supervision Office of Guangyang District issued the Health Supervision Opinions for the enterprise in 2017 and 2018, respectively. However, the enterprise always handled it in an attitude of coping with inspection and could not be maintained for a long time. At the same time, the health and Epidemic Prevention Department of the enterprise sample inspection results show that some of the parameters do not meet the standards.
To sum up, the factories that process tableware for Weijiekang Company mentioned in the report have been banned according to law, and the equipment has been emptied at present.
From June 6 to June 9, a total of 360 people were dispatched by Guangyang District Health Bureau and District Market Supervision Bureau. They were divided into four groups and arranged more than 780 catering units. It was found that 8 catering units used tableware produced by Super Clean Tableware Disinfection Service Department. They had been asked to stop using them immediately and break their packages on the spot.
In addition, Langfang Municipal Government asked all townships (offices) to conduct a survey of similar enterprises. It was found that Jinkang Catering Tools Disinfection Co., Ltd. had a cooperative relationship with Weijiekang Co., Ltd. in the past. This enterprise also had problems such as incomplete procedures, poor hygiene, pollution, and had been banned, and most of the equipment had been dismantled.
Reporters as fools undercover tableware cleaning plant: the more disgusting the scene, the more want to expose it
In order to be able to enter the cleaning plant undercover, the reporter of the Beijing News dressed up as a fool. After entering the cleaning and disinfection workshop, even if he had enough psychological preparation, he could not avoid a real fool: piles of food residues, disgusting odor, unclean tableware wiped with dirty yellow and black gloves.
