China to Raise Requirements on Infant Formula Producers

China plans to increase standards for domestic infant-formula producers amid fresh concerns about food safety after Fonterra Cooperative Group Ltd. warned of tainted ingredients in some products.

The government is seeking public feedback on new rules for the baby-milk industry, according to a statement posted on the China Food and Drug Administration’s website yesterday. The regulations, published in draft form, will require producers to own milk sources and have research and development capability, the agency said.
