China Searches for 100 Tonnes of Melamine-tainted Milk

Investigators are searching for 100 tons of milk that’s been tainted with melamine and remains on grocery shelves. From BBC:

Two dairies were shut down at the weekend after they were found to be selling products using the powder, which should have been destroyed.

The melamine had been added to milk to artificially boost protein levels.

China Daily said the Ningxia Tiantian dairy was shut down on Saturday after it was found to have processed and repackaged 170 tonnes of milk powder in its products.

The powder should have been destroyed following the 2008 scandal but had been given to the dairy by another company as debt payment.
