U.S. trade officials have asked their Chinese counterparts to increase oversight of food and drug exports.

The request comes amid ongoing problems with Chinese exports, including chemically spiked pet food ingredients, toxic fish and potentially poisonous toothpaste.

Last month, China was number-one in countries whose imports were stopped at the border by the Food and Drug Administration. The list includes filthy mushrooms, drug-laced frozen eel and juice made with unsafe color additives.
