Fonterra says independent tests on its Anlene milk powder have found no traces of melamine.
Results today from the Health Sciences Authority in Singapore on samples from Bangladesh have come back negative,” said Fonterra’s director of group manufacturing, Gary Romano.
“There is no basis in fact for any speculation that Fonterra product sold under the Anlene brand is anything but the highest quality,” he said.
“We fully expect this to be confirmed by the Bangladesh government tests on our product which are expected to be released in the next few days.”
The Bangladesh Government is re-testing all major dairy brands in its market, after saying that a mix of negative and positive results from different laboratories on the same batches of infant formula had caused confusion.
