ZHENGZHOU, July 25 (Xinhua) -- The Intermediate People's Court of the city of Jiaozuo in central Henan province opened court on Monday morning on the case of producing and selling clenbuterol, a poisonous chemical that boosts the output of lean meat.

The Monday court, the court of first instance, is open to public.

In March this year, the China Central Television reported that some pork producers had used pork tainted with the fat-burning drug clenbuterol in its products.

Clenbuterol is a chemical that can be fed to pigs to make them produce lean meat. The chemical is poisonous to humans and is banned as an additive in stock feed in China.
