Milk powder concerns in China

Published 21/09/2008

China's two main supermarket chains have removed milk powder made by Nestle from their shelves, after a newspaper reported it contained the industrial chemical melamine.

The chemical was reportedly found in the Swiss food Giant's milk powder, made in the North east of China.

Nestle's Hong Kong office have not yet commented on the reports.

Authorities in China have recalled milk and dairy products from 22 Chinese companies after samples were found to contain the chemical, which can cause kidney failure.
