Feed Contamination Serious in China

It seems many Chinese feed manufacturers are adding melamine to their products deliberately. China only banned melamine as an animal feed additive in May 2007.  According to some officials, melamine is commonly added as feed additive even before the scandal involving Sanlu and milk. 

  • China closed 238 feed companies for melamine-related violations in the last 2 months
  • 3,682 tons of substandard feed destroyed by Chinese government during the same period
  • more than 500 feed manufacturers and animal breeding farms found to have done illegal and questionable practices
