Twelve suspects involved in growing and selling 14,000 kilos of toxic bean sprouts stood trial on Wednesday in courts in south China's Guangdong province.

Guangzhou Haizhu Court sentenced the gang leader, Pan Mian, to four-years in jail with a fine of 50,000 yuan (about $8,142 USD). The other members face two to four years of imprisonment.

Pan Mian and his confederates used illegal additives such as growth hormone in their production and sold the bean sprouts without any certification, beginning in Sept. of 2011.

Nearly three tons of toxic products were sold to the wholesale market every day.

Guangzhou police authorities launched a campaign to crack down on producing and selling toxic bean sprouts in the first half of this year city wide. 22 cases were cleared up.
