Fake infant formula kills

The week's news at a glance.

Fuyang, China

At least a dozen Chinese babies in Fuyang city have died over the past two years from drinking fake baby formula. The Chinese government said that 45 companies that claimed to be selling powdered milk for infants were actually peddling starch and flour mixtures with almost no nutritional value. Hundreds of infants have suffered malnutrition and brain damage. The Fuyang city government knew of the scams, a local official who would not give his name told the Los Angeles Times. “The companies bribed the local industrial standards bureau,” the official said. “It comes down to just one word: corruption.”
