Taiwan's 'gutter oil' scandal deepens in Hong Kong and Macau

TAIPEI -- In a deepening tainted food scandal, a senior Taiwan health official said on Friday that more contaminated cooking oil, or 'gutter oil', has been exported to Hong Kong and Macau than was previously realized. 

     On Thursday, local authorities revealed that additional Taiwanese oil products had likely been contaminated with lard from Hong Kong meant for animal feed.
