The Chinese Ministry of Agriculture (MOA) will carry out special quality inspections on fresh milk and cow feedstuff nationwide in the wake of the contaminated baby milk powder scandal.
After the Sanlu baby milk
powder scandal, the MOA had immediately ordered its local agencies nationwide to
establish special inspection working groups to strengthen quality check to
prevent any sub-standard fresh milk from sale.
The Sanlu Group, a leading
Chinese dairy producer based in northern Hebei Province, admitted Friday that it
had found some of its baby milk powder products were contaminated with melamine,
a chemical raw material. It issued an immediate recall of milk formula made
before August 6.
