Sweet return for candy

CHINA'S iconic White Rabbit milk candy has returned to overseas markets after a half-year sales suspension amid the widespread tainted milk scandal, a spokesman of the candy producer Guanshengyuan said yesterday.

The first batch of 6,000 boxes of White Rabbit milk candies was exported early this month to Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, India and Canada, the spokesman said.

The Guanshengyuan company recalled all exports, some of which tested positive for melamine in Singapore last September amid the tainted milk scandal that involved a group of major Chinese dairy producers. It also suspended its domestic sales.

The candy returned to the domestic market in October, as the products had passed Shanghai quality supervision administration tests.

The spokesman said the latest batch of exports included the traditional milk candy and a newly developed sweet "golden rabbit."

The new brand is a "birthday gift" for the 60th anniversary of the founding of the country, he said.
