In the fall of 2008, at least six infants died and hundreds of thousands more were hospitalized after being fed milk powder manufactured by the Chinese company Sanlu. An INVESTIGATION revealed that the company had been adding melamine, a chemical used in plastics manufacture, to its milk powder in order to give the semblance of higher protein content. From that point on, Chinese parents have sought infant formula produced abroad, and “poison milk powder” has been a household term.
