China prosecutors take melamine case


A criminal case against the managers of a Shanghai dairy accused of spiking milk products with high levels of melamine will proceed.


Shanghai police have concluded their investigation into the alleged production of contaminated milk by Shanghai Panda Dairy Co. and handed the case to local prosecutors, the state-run Xinhua news agency reported.


"The government shut down the company and sealed up all its stocks," Xinhua quoted a police statement. "No damages were caused in the society as all the products were recalled."


No recall was publicly announced after word of the case was initially reported by Xinhua in December 2009. In that report, Xinhua said officials had been dispatched from Shanghai to other provinces to handle a product recall.
