China Executes Two for Milk Scandal

China executed two people on Tuesday for their roles in the tainted-milk scandal that killed six babies and sickened 300,000 more. Zhang Yujun was executed for endangering public safety and Geng Jinping was executed for producing and selling toxic food. The two men produced and sold the powder to the producers of the tainted milk. It contained the industrial chemical melamine, which causes kidney stones and kidney failures.
