New Zealand Dairy Giant Apologizes for Tainted Milk in China

Denies attempt at cover up


New Zealand's dairy giant Fonterra has apologized for a botulism scare that forced product recalls in China.

However, CEO Theo Spierings told a news conference in China Monday that there had been no delay and no cover-up in announcing the discovery of botulism bacteria in whey that is used in some of its products.
