The Associated Press published the following:

Zheng Xiaoyu’s execution was confirmed by state television and the official Xinhua News Agency.

“The few corrupt officials of the (State Food and Drug Administration) are the shame of the whole system and their scandals have revealed some very serious problems,” SFDA spokeswoman Yan Jiangying said at a news conference held to highlight efforts to improve China’s track record on food and drug safety.
