China's Ministry of Health responded in state media today to public concerns that new quality standards for the milk industry in China had been influenced by major milk producers in the country, as some experts have publicly alleged in recent days. The MOH said the new standards had been drafted by 70 experts, including 24 from various universities and government quality control agencies, and 9 representatives from milk companies (Abbot, Mead-Johnson, Danone, Sanyuan, Mengniu, Yili and Guangming). The other 37 "experts" were not specified.

Wu is the former top leader of Hebei's Shijiazhuang city and a former member of the provincial standing committee of the CCP. His presence at the meeting suggests he is still active in Hebei politics three years after the milk scandal, which centered on the Shijiazhuang-based milk company Sanlu.
