ZHANG:
And yet another food scandal rocks China. This time, the victims are babies. Here's more.

STORY:
Now Chinese Dairy giant The Sanlu Group has issued an immediate recall of milk formula made before August 6, which was apparently tainted with melamine -- an ingredient in plastics, fertilizers, and cleaning products..

It was unclear whether any of the problem formula had been exported. On Thursday the U.S. Food and Drug Administration warned consumers not to buy or use baby formula from China, which is already banned in the U.S.

In the past, Chinese suppliers have also used melamine illegally in animal feed to bolster its apparent protein content.

In 2004, at least thirteen babies in Anhui province died after drinking fake milk powder that investigators later found had no nutritional value at all.
