China’s problems with food safety, and especially tainted milk, continue. Three children have been killed in the recent case of contaminated milk in Gansu Province. From BBC:
Thirty-five others, mostly children, are being treated at hospitals in Gansu province, officials said.
An initial investigation showed that the victims were poisoned by nitrite, a chemical used in the curing of meat.
The two farms have been sealed off and an investigation is under way, Xinhua news agency reported.
This is the latest in a series of food safety scandals to hit the dairy industry.
