“Strange” Milk from China in the Dominican Republic

I came upon this interesting article that was just released.  Dominican officials are on the look out for what they call “strange milk from China.”  The DR is a net exporter of milk to China, and the price in question is far below market value.  This lead DR officals to put out a warning about this milk as it may not be up to human consumption levels. 

 They fear that, because the global price of milk is rather high, someone may be selling something that is not fit for humans, in order to make a quick buck.  This would not be the first time DR has had problems with products from China.  Like many other countries, they too, have had problems with tainted products and are very cautious of any more possible problems.

It is good to see the DR officials are on this rather fast.  It seems they may have learned from past experiences.
