Dairy Giants Issue First Public Apology for Scandal

He Bolin of China Daily reports on the first public apology by Mengniu, Yili, and Bright Dairy for their role in the milk scandal.

During a talk show program, Dialogue, broadcast last night on the economic channel of China Central Television, executives of the three companies admitted to “the problems and mistakes” of their firms.

Their apology came one month after the surfacing of the scandal involving tainted milk products from dairy giant Sanlu Group, in which melamine-contaminated baby formula had sickened thousands of infants nationwide with kidney-related illnesses.
