Daily Outrage: China’s latest product safety scandal 

WHAT: In 2008 at least six Chinese children died after drinking milk contaminated by an industrial chemical and the nation’s former drug and food safety chief was executed. Now a six-month investigation by a government-run business newspaper revealed that four children are dead and as many as 70 more suffered severe brain injury after injections with hepatitis B vaccine that should have been destroyed after being spoiled by summer heat.

WHAT’S BEING DONE: Despite all the detailed evidence printed in the China Economic Times, the national Health Ministry still denies that the vaccine caused any harm. It claims all the victims died or were injured by natural causes.
