The administration to cows of spoiled feed would be the cause of high levels of carcinogenic toxins, whose presence was detected in XNUMX cups milk produced by the most important Chinese dairy company - the China Mengniu Company as well as in a smaller factory. This is yet another scandal and involves the Chinese food industry.



A high concentration of alfatossine was taken over by the experts in the milk produced by the Chinese named companies Mengniu e Fujian Changfu. To be present the supervisors in charge of the investigation ordered the destruction of the contaminated consignments. But the contamination it can only end when the animals are no longer given moldy forage.

Alfatoxins are commonly produced by fungi capable of affecting soy, corn and wheat crops, which, once fed to cows, will contaminate their milk. At low levels, they are not harmful to humans, but at high concentrations, alpha-toxins are linked to the occurrence of tumors, which would particularly affect the liver.

The consumption of cow milk has been growing in China over the last few decades, closely followed by the business ofdairy industry. Milk became a common food in the diet of the Chinese population in a short time, although traditionally it was not. The biggest scandal related to its production dates back to 2008, when, due to the presence of a chemical substance, the melamine, used in order to keep the protein value of milk powder, but also found in other dairy products, were affected by intoxication over 300 thousand children, of which 6 met death.

As reported by the BBC, Mengniu has made it known that none of its products already placed on the market are contaminated, while Fujian Changfu has ordered the withdrawal of each offending game, publicly apologizing for what happened. This seems to be confirmed by the fact that at the moment there have been no reports of poisoning due to the intake of potentially contaminated dairy products. However, attention in China remains high, given that the last three deaths of children caused by the intake of contaminated milk only date back to last April.
