It’s not over yet. More countries are involved. The EU is checking their biscuits, South Korea is checking their butter, African countries,  Asian countries, Has anyone heard from North Korea? I wonder if the only subject of the  Yu, Yan and Rice meetings is nukes? If you know anyone shopping asian, again, let them know. Milk, milk powder, butter, dairy derivatives, processed foods containing dairy, like cookies, biscuits, breads, puddings, creams. Hey, it’s just me, but that’s what I’d be wondering about.

Three year cover up in China milk scandal

The Radio Australia, September 19, 2008-

[Reports in the Chinese media suggest the company at the centre of a contaminated milk scandal knew it had a problem as far back as 2005.

Our correspondent Kerri Ritchie reports, more than 6,000 children in China are sick and four babies have died after drinking milk laced with melamine.

Chinese media is reporting dairy company Sanlu knew its products were contaminated three years ago but kept quiet.

Sanlu’s chairwoman has been sacked along with a number of government officials.

New Zealand dairy giant Fonterra part-owns Sanlu.

Fonterra knew about the crisis six weeks before it went public.

New Zealand trade minister Phil Goff doesn’t believe Fonterra’s representatives at Sanlu should be arrested but he says Fonterra should learn some lessons.

“China is a market of huge opportunity but it’s also a market which operates quite differently from New Zealand,” he said.

Fonterra says it’s now doing all it can to make things right.

Meanwhile, the Chinese government quality watchdog says nearly 10 per cent of milk samples taken from top Chinese dairy companies was contaminated by melamine….]
