No quick-fix for China's troubled dairy industry

No quick-fix for China's troubled dairy industry

Dairy industry experts say that four years after a contaminated milk scandal killed six babies, China's dairy industry is still plagued by quality lapses, from toxic mold in milk to mercury in baby formula.
Experts say the new scandals have a silver lining: they show the industry's new transparency. But the persistent problems also underscore that milk is a new addition to the Chinese diet and it will be a long time before it's truly safe.
The latest company to run into a problem is Bright Dairy and Food Co, which this week announced that one of its factories had accidentally flushed some alkaline water, used for cleaning, into cartons of milk.
The recall of some 300 cartons didn't happen until consumers complained about foul smelling milk.
