Because cesium was detected in Meiji brand baby formula, the company recalled this product recently. In China, many people bought Meiji milk powder through an overseas shopping service and online shopping. But the Meiji Company refused to recall its products in China.

The Meiji (Shanghai) company said this recall had nothing to do with products sold in China, because its milk powder sold in China was imported from Australia. The domestic consumers who bought Meiji baby formula from shopping agencies will not enjoy the recall service.

The Meiji Company in Guangzhou explained yesterday that because China has banned the import of Meiji products, even if they recall its products in China, they cannot afford to replace milk powder for Chinese consumers.

So just STOP buying meiji products fron now on but buy dairy products from NZ and Aussie of known brands instead. Meiji brands shipped from Aust may not be produced in Australia; but from Japan thru 3rd-parties to look good to naive Chinese consumers! That"s how cheap they are all harboring the value of China and Chinese while they all love the money affairs of China and Chinese markets!!
