Adjust font size:

China's Ministry of Commerce (MOC) expressed its understanding that some countries and regions have taken restrictive measures on Chinese dairy products, a MOC spokesman has said.

The spokesman made the remarks on Friday in response to the restrictive measures on Chinese diary products after the scandal of the melamine contaminated milk that killed at least three infants.

He said Chinese government has always attached great importance to product quality and food security, and endeavored to protect people's life and heath.

The spokesman said Chinese food safety watchdogs had strengthened supervision of exported dairy products, stressing that it has taken effective measures and strengthened its surveillance of exported milk and diary products.

Melamine examination was carried on each batch of milk and diary products since Sept. 10, and was expanded to cover milk-containing food since Sept. 20, according to MOC.

China exported more than 130 batches of milk and diary products, weighing over 3,000 tonnes from Sept. 10 to Oct. 6, all of which passed melamine test, the spokesman said.

China calls for unbiased, scientific and fair treatment of Chinese diary products and set up no barriers to normal trade activities.
