Milk tests find no more melamine

NO melamine has been found by spot tests of raw milk conducted since last December across the nation, an official with the Health Ministry said yesterday.

As of April 30, 68 tons of illegal food additives and 116.3 tons of food that used excessive levels of additives have been seized, Su Zhi, deputy director with the ministry's food safety coordination and supervision bureau, told a press conference in Beijing.

The Chinese central government established a special law enforcement group involving nine departments last December for a nationwide campaign to crack down on illegal and excessive use of food additives among food manufacturers.

Su said more than 4 million law-enforcement officials had been mobilized in the four-month campaign and 30 suspects had been arrested.
