Recalled milk sold to students in China: state media

SHANGHAI (AFP) — Dairy products that were recalled in southern China to be tested for the deadly chemical melamine were instead dumped at universities and sold to students at a discount, state media reported Thursday.

The milk products were sold in supermarkets and student dormitories in Guangzhou, the capital of Guangdong province, the Xinhua news agency said, citing a local newspaper.

In one university supermarket, bulk boxes of Mengniu milk and Yili yogurt -- both suspected brands -- were sold for less than 20 yuan (2.90 dollars), or about half the original price, the report said.

Sigh... what can you do? I'm pretty sure college students in China know all about the tainted milk scandal yet they still buy and drink it. Maybe I should have sold them my White Rabbit candy at a discount too.
