China: Baby milk powders recalled in Shaanxi province
June 24 , 2015
Three milk producers in China’s Shaanxi province have been asked to recall their baby formula powders, reports say.
The country’s food safety watchdog urged local authorities to act against the producers after excessive levels of nitrate were detected in some samples of powdered milk.
In 2008, six children died and hundreds of thousands fell ill after consuming contaminated milk products, in one of China's biggest food scandals.
