|The Chinese Health Ministry announced that more than 1200 infants have become ill from tainted milk powder, and a second child has died, according to a story in the USA Today. Investigators believe melamine was added to the milk powder to increase the milk’s volume and increase its protein levels. The Chinese company that produced the milk, Sanlu, is partially owned by a New Zealand dairy cooperative, Fonterra, which alleges Sanlu ignored Fonterra’s calls for a recall for more than six weeks when concerns first surfaced.
