China’s Ministry of Health announced that it suspects a recent rash of kidney stone cases afflicting dozens of infants across the country is due to ingesting milk powder containing melamine, the Wall Street Journal reported. After an initial investigation, the ministry said it suspected that the tainted formula was produced by Shijiazhuang Sanlu Group in Hebei province, and that Sanlu had recalled all baby milk powder produced before August 6. In Gansu province in China’s northwest, 59 kidney stone cases in infants have been reported this year, including at least one related death. The pattern has revived concern over food and product safety in China after a number of scandals emerged last year.
