(Reuters) - The mayor of the Chinese city of Changchun resigned on Tuesday, state media reported, after a safety scandal at Changchun-based vaccine maker Changsheng Biotechnology sparked widespread consumer anger.
The company was accused in July of falsifying data for a rabies vaccine and manufacturing an ineffective vaccine for babies, triggering public outrage and multiple official investigations.
The People's Daily reported on Tuesday mayor LiuChanglong's resignation had been accepted by the Standing Committee of Changchun's People's Congress. The state-run paper did not directly link Liu's decision with the vaccine scandal.
