THE CHINESE BABY MILK SCANDAL HAS WIDENED AND NOW INVOLVES GLOBAL GIANT SWISS COMPANY NESTLE...
The Chinese baby milk scandal has widened and now involves giant Swiss company, Nestle.
The death toll is now four and the number of ill children exceeds 40,000.
Twelve more people have been arrested and another seventy eight questioned in connection to the scandal.
There have been reports of other milk products being contaminated by melamine in overseas countries, including New Zealand where a number of milk products originating from China have been taken off the shelves after tests have shown they have been contaminated as well, and also in Hong Kong where products have been removed from two supermarket chains.
This scandal has a long way to run, in my opinion, and will continue to harm innocent foreign companies through their association with their guilty Chinese counterparts.
