The China Dairy Industry Association has announced that their latest monthly check of dairy products found 100 percent of such products met requirements, according to a report by the National Food Quality Supervision and Inspection Center on Friday.

The monthly check was conducted among products made by 15 major domestic dairy manufacturers nationwide and sold in Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei Province, Shanxi and Shaanxi provinces.

The check covered physicochemical elements, pollutants, microbe levels and non-edible elements such as melamine. The results came back showing that all tested products met national food safety standards.  

This monthly check was originally launched by the association in February and the last eight of these have all shown 100 percent pass rates. 

Lu Shengling, 26, from Shanghai, told the Global Times that she would still continue to buy foreign-made dairy products.

Song Liang, a dairy industry analyst from the Distribution Productivity Promotion Center of China Commerce, told the Global Times on Friday that these more regular checks had allowed more and more problems to be exposed to the public.
