China Sentences 113 In Tainted Pork Scandal


China's state news agency says more than 100 people including 77 government employees have been sentenced in a scandal involving pork tainted with a banned chemical.

At least one person was given the death penalty.

Several farms in Henan Province were found to be using the fat-burning drug clenbuterol -- a banned chemical that makes pork leaner but can harm humans.
