Last Updated(Beijing Time):2008-09-24 11:50
China's State Council, or Cabinet, on Wednesday said it had ordered mainland dairy giant Sanlu to immediately stop sales of powdered milk in Taiwan after announcing the group had sold products contaminated with melamine to the island.

State Council spokesman Li Weiyi said 1,000 bags among 25 tons of powdered milk sold by Hebei-based Sanlu to Taiwan in June were found contaminated with melamine.

"The Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council informed the Taiwan authorities immediately after the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine reported the case, and has ordered Sanlu Companies to ask their Taiwan partners to stop selling the contaminated milk powder," said Li at a press conference in Beijing.

"We have also informed Taiwan authorities about the other 21 mainland diary companies whose products were found contaminated with melamine," said Li. However, those companies had sold no products to Taiwan.
