China's quarantine authority rejected 183 batches of imported food products and another six batches of imported cosmetics in March after the batches failed to meet national quality standards, a spokesman said on Tuesday.

The food products were mainly biscuits, cookie products and cereal grains from 27 countries, said Chen Xitong, spokesman for the General Administration for Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine, during a news conference on Tuesday.

Substandard certificates, microbial contaminations and failures to meet quality standards were the reasons for the rejections, he said.

The imported cosmetics were mostly skincare products from four countries.
