CHINA’s embattled dairy industry has received another blow with the discovery of aflatoxin in milk produced by the Mengniu Dairy Group. The country’s General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine made the latest discovery in nationwide testing of 200 dairy products made by 128 companies. Mengniu said the milk, produced at one of its plants in the south-western province of Sichuan, was tested before being sold so the contaminated milk never reached the market. It added that the products had been destroyed, and apologised to consumers.
