Fourth baby dies and 12 more people are arrested in China toxic milk scandal
International, especially in Indonesia scares about toxin and dangerous faults in its food and products in China.
A fourth baby has died as the horror of China's toxic milk scandal led to 12 more arrests today.
More than 6,200 babies are ill, with over 150 of those suffering from acute kidney failure, as employees desperately pull the tainted milk from supermarket shelves.
The mounting scandal forced the government to meet under Premier Wen Jiabao yesterday to slam the dairy industry as "chaotic". Industry heads and political figures have been sacked among the arrests. The total number of people arrested now stands at 18.
The health scare erupted after Sanlu Group last week revealed its milk powder contained melamine, which is banned in food.
