Chinese Dairy Producers Shut Down amid Toxic Food Scandals.

Nearly half of China’s dairy firms have been ordered to halt production after several toxic food scandals.

The Chinese regime’s General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine says that out of about 1,200 dairy production companies, 426 producers failed to pass inspections, and 107 have been ordered to halt production.

A toxic milk scandal in 2008 killed at least six children and left hundreds of thousands ill. Producers had been lacing their milk with poisonous melamine to boost the appearance of its protein content.

Earlier this year there was a public outcry about manufacturers adding leather protein powder to dairy products, in another attempt to cheat protein content checks.

Local media reported the licensing crackdown would be used to eliminate smaller companies and consolidate the industry into fewer, larger companies.
