August 21, 2010: 10:17 PM EST

The case of melanine tainted milk powder in Qinghai and Hebei offically wrapped up today with the investigation and persecution of 41 people who were involved. The case orginated from a secret stash of leftover problematic milk powder that the CEO of Hebei’s Luyuan diary company kept after a previous attempt by the food safety commission to get rid of it. He then sold it to various other manufacturers in different parts of China. Authorities are still trying to recover the rest of the product. About 104 tons of milk powder was recalled and seized by the food safety commission. Various departments are still conducting inspections on diary manufacturers, attempting to prevent substandard milk from entering the market, at the same time cracking down on offenders.
