The Beijing Animal Health Inspection Institute prevented more than 15,000 swill-fed pigs from entering the market between June and August as part of a campaign to curb the spread of illegal slaughterhouses.

Pig farmers gather swill from hotels, restaurants and canteens to feed their pigs at a lower cost. The institute said that it found 157 pig farms in Beijing’s suburban districts of Tongzhou, Shunyi and Fangshan using a mixture of liquid and solid food scraps to feed their pigs.
