Edited and translated by People's Daily Online

Chinese dairy giant Bright Dairy published a statement on July 23 admitting that batches of its reduced-fat cheese and butter contained excessive bacteria. This is the third food safety scandal hitting the dairy company in recent weeks.

Excessive bacteria due to long-distance transportation and unstable temperatures

The Guangzhou Administration for Industry and Commerce announced on July 20 that batches of Bright Dairy’s 50 percent reduced-fat cheese produced on Feb. 23 and 125-gram slabs of butter produced on April 23 were found to contain excessive bacteria during the administration’s second spot check of dairy products in the second quarter of the year. The spot check of 840 pieces of Bright Dairy’s 50 percent reduced-fat cheese and 10 slabs of butter found that two pieces of cheese and 1 slab of butter contained excessive bacteria.

After a root cause analysis, Bright Dairy attributed the excessive bacteria in its products to squeeze damage caused by long-distance transportation as well as unstable temperatures in sales environments.

Bright Dairy claimed that they have taken measures to further strengthen supervision and management during transportation process, preventing similar incidents from happening.
