(Newser) – Chinese officials have recalled some 170 tons of milk powder tainted with deadly melamine in the latest evidence that products from the last industrial scandal were repackaged and placed back on the market. The milk has been found in Shanghai and throughout 6 provinces. Hundreds of thousands were sickened and at least 6 children died in the last melamine scandal in 2008. Officials have issued an emergency crackdown in a bid to locate and remove tainted milk products and have shut down two dairies.
