China Loses Iranian Market for Milk Products Following an Import Ban

Following the Chinese milk product contamination scandal in which thousands of Chinese babies were reported ill, Iran has decided to ban imports of Chinese milk products.

"Imports of basic materials, food and drink products made in China, in which milk has been used as an ingredient, are banned," the Kayhan newspaper quoted a health ministry statement as saying.

Melamine, which is normally used to make plastics, has been found in infant milk formula, sickening nearly 53,000 children and killing four in China.

In one of China's worst ever product recall scandals, countries from Asia to Europe have decided to suspend imports of Chinese milk products or to withdraw them from the market as the number of products involved grows.

"Those supplying such products will be legally dealt with," the Iranian health ministry said, adding that the goods will be also seized.
