(Newser) – A cancer-causing toxin found in milk produced by two major dairy companies in China—including the nation's largest—is being caused by rotten feed fed to cows, say Chinese authorities. The mildewed feed is creating high levels of carcinogenic aflatoxin in milk in the latest dairy scandal to rock China. Authorities have ordered the tainted milk and feed destroyed, reports AP.
