Tainted Chinese milk products found in Russia
The Chinese tainted milk scandal continues to spread, with spome of the contaminated milk products now being found in Russia.
Russian news agencies say food inspectors have found nearly two tons of Chinese dry milk believed to be contaminated with the industrial chemical melamine.
ITAR-Tass quotes Russia's chief epidemiologist Gennady Onishchenko as saying the dry milk was seized in the Far Eastern city of Khabarovsk, on the Chinese border.
Interfax reports that inspectors have found more than 1,000 items containing Chinese-dairy products around the country.
Consumer watchdog Rospotrebnadzor on Tuesday banned all imports of Chinese dairy products.
