Milk crisis spurs ban in 12 nations

September 25, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

At least 12 countries, from Indonesia to Colombia, have banned Chinese dairy products or foods that contain Chinese milk after four Chinese babies were killed and tens of thousands were sickened by melamine contamination.

Worries that tainted ingredients may have contaminated other foods such as yogurt, cookies and candies have led several more countries to step up testing of Chinese imports.

The European Union has urged intensified checks on imports of products such as bread or chocolate to ensure they contain no traces of contaminated milk.
