    CHINA MILK PRODUCTS RECALLED
    September 19, 2008 - China

    China recalls a large amount of milk and milk products, such as baby formula, after inspectors find melamine in liquid milk and tainted baby formula kills four children and gets over six thousand sick. Three of the country's largest milk producers were involved in the scandal after trying to decrease costs by diluting the products. Update: In 2009 a number of senior executives from the companies involved are executed by Chinese authorities and more than 300,000 babies had fallen ill from consuming milk products tainted with melamine.
