The authorities in the central Chinese province of Henan have closed 16 pig farms and sealed 134 tonnes of pork products after an illegal drug was reportedly used to produce lean meat, the official Xinhua news agency reported on Wednesday.

Some farms in the province, one of the country's major pig breeding areas, are reported to have fed pigs with ractopamine, banned in the country, to promote production of lean meat, with the contaminated pork sold to the market and Henan Shuanghui Investment & Development Co Ltd, the country's top meat processor.
