Lap cheung

Lap cheung is a form of pork sausage, and is a common food in Guangdong Province, Hong Kong and Macau. It consists of ground pork, usually packed in a casing going through compression, drying and exposure to sunlight.

Health concerns

The Hong Kong government, on September 14, 2006, disclosed that a sample made in Macau sold at Kee Wah contains a forbidden colouring, Rhodamine B, which can cause vomiting and suppress the central nervous system.
