Chinese Dairy Bankrupt after Tainted Milk Scandal
Dairy producer Sanlu Group, at the center of a melamine scandal in September which sickened nearly 300,000 and killed at least 6 babies, has filed for bankruptcy.
A court in Shijiazhuang, China, where the company is based, told CNN Wednesday it has received the bankruptcy application.
Baby formula produced by Sanlu — previously one of China’s leading dairy producers — was first flagged in the scandal when it recalled about 700 tons of the powdered milk in September after discovering the product was contaminated with melamine.
