More tainted milk

This article was originally published in Foodnews

CHINA has seized more melamine-contaminated milk powder in its northern provinces, according to Xinhua, the official state news agency. Xinhua says a total of 103 tonnes of milk powder from four dairy brands in Hebei, Shanxi and Tianjin provinces were found to be laced with the melamine. It is not known whether this is contaminated powder from old stocks that should have been destroyed, or a new instance of adulteration. The authorities have detained 41 suspects in connection with the case. In July, samples of milk powder found in north-western provinces Gansu and Qinghai had levels of the chemical melamine up to 500 times beyond the permitted limit.
