Public health, quality control and other departments of the Chinese government said they will take more concrete measures to supervise food safety for kids.
Since last year, a batch of famous international and Chinese food brands have gotten in trouble.
As one of the biggest special milk powder producers in the world, Merzancen general manager Li Yikai said food safety needs cooperation from manufacturers, suppliers, retailers and supervisors.
Children, women and old people have a particularly high risk of getting ill from bad food. It is crucial to guarantee food quality, said Zhang Zhiqiang, an official of the Ministry of Health.
