The event of "earthen pit" exposed at the "315" party of CCTV this year has caused considerable controversy in the society, and the relevant reports are shocking; After the incident was exposed, brands such as Kangshifu and Wugu Fish Meal issued statements announcing the cancellation of their cooperation with the company, the removal of related products, and an apology. The exposure of this incident should not only reflect on the omissions in the production and sales processes from relevant supervision and management departments to quality inspection and sales departments, but also reflect on the implementation level and application guarantee of China's Food Safety Law and relevant food safety regulations in judicial practice. From the perspective of the Food Safety Law, this article will analyze a series of legal considerations and legal suggestions on food safety issues in China triggered by the "soil pit pickled Chinese cabbage" incident.
