Dumex, the baby-food brand owned by France’s Danone (BN.EPA), issued a statement Saturday accepting “full accountability” for management lapses after China Central Television aired allegations that it had bribed nurses and doctors to sell its formula to new parents, Financial Times reported.

The company said it would appoint “new management personnel to deal with relevant issues.” Danone is the latest foreign company to be targeted by Beijing’s intensifying anti-bribery probes.
