Botulism scare shows NZ reliance on dairy monopoly

The company, dairy giant Fonterra, on Saturday announced that the unsanitary pipes had tainted some of the whey concentrate it sells for use in infant formula with a type of bacteria that can cause botulism. By Wednesday, Fonterra appeared to have contained the threat when it announced that all the affected infant formula had been isolated or recalled, and that no babies had gotten sick.
