more tainted dairy prod­ucts dis­cov­ered

Austin American-Statesman - - SATURDAYBRIEFING -

BEI­JING — Chi­nese of­fi­cials have found 76 tons of milk pow­der and dairy prod­ucts laced with a deadly in­dus­trial chem­i­cal in at least three prov­inces that was ap­par­ently left over from a milk scan­dal in 2008 that killed six ba­bies and sick­ened hun­dreds of thou­sands. State me­dia and food safety ex­perts said the melamine-tainted pow­der was prob­a­bly pro­duced in or be­fore 2008 and stock­piled in­stead of de­stroyed. The dis­cov­ery shows that toxic milk re­mains a dan­ger in China de­spite a crack­down in which dozens of peo­ple were ar­rested and two were ex­e­cuted for pro­duc­ing or sell­ing toxic milk.
