THOUSANDS of glutinous rice dumplings were pulled off the shelves in Taiwan after authorities found their expiry dates had been tampered with.

Sin Chew Daily reported that the company was found to have outsourced the production of its dumplings to an unlicensed underground factory.

They also found that the dumplings were “recycled” from last year and their expiry date altered to June next year.

Besides the dumplings, which were sold under the brand name “Shui Jiao Sao”, other products like steamed buns and noodles under the brand were also investigated by the authorities.

It was reported that the authorities had received complaints from some schools about the dumplings which they claimed had emitted a sour smell.

Further investigations led to the discovery.

> The daily also reported that a young mother fell to her death from the 18th floor of an apartment in Petaling Jaya after leaving a message to her boyfriend saying that she would be his wife in the next life.

Yao Ling Ling, 23, had apparently also left a message on her Facebook page before the tragedy which took place on Saturday morning.

Her father said he believed Yao was suffering from depression.
