New liquid milk supplies melamine（三聚氰胺）free
The latest sample test detected no melamine in newly supplied liquid milk on 中国's market, the country's quality watchdog（监察人）said Saturday.
Samples of 609 batches of liquid milk from 27 cities across 中国 were found free of melamine, said the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ).
Altogether 75 brands were sampled for the test, including top-selling ones such as Yili, Mengniu, Bright Dairy, Sanyuan and Wandashan, according to the AQSIQ.
The test was the sixth in 中国 after the tainted（污染的）milk powder scandal（丑闻）erupted last month. A total of 2,093 batches of liquid milk under 115 brands, among other dairy products, have been checked since then, said the AQSIQ.
A nationwide inspection of baby milk powder was ordered on September 11 after media reports that products from Sanlu and other Chinese brands contained melamine. Testing has been broadened from baby formula（婴儿食品）=to other types of milk products.
In the previous inspection, on September 30, officials tested 265 batches of adult milk powder produced before September 14 by 154 companies, and the tests found 31 batches from 20 companies were tainted with melamine.
