A Chinese blogger called Han Yue has posted a notice that purports to be from the Beijing City Government Food Safety Office (北京市政府食品安全办公室) regarding restrictions on restaurants and on the transportation and sale of meat during the Olympic period.

The main thrust of the notice is that all meat transported into Beijing during the Olympics will be thoroughly checked, and that the 112 official Olympic restaurants will not be allowed to serve dog meat, whilst other restaurants in the capital (especially those which serve Korean, Yunnan and Guizhou cuisines) are strongly encouraged not to serve dog meat during the Games.
