The General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine, the Ministry of Commerce, the Ministry of Health, and other Chinese government bodies have urged supermarkets, shops, retail stalls in towns and rural areas to stop selling all brands of milk powder and liquid milk in all batches that were produced before September 14, 2008.

Manufacturers will have to send all the off-shelf dairy products to qualified inspection bodies designated by provincial quality inspection departments for inspection; as to other dairy products, manufacturers can entrust inspection bodies listed in the website of AQSIQ or other qualified organizations to conduct inspections for melamine. Dairy products that are up to standard will be marked a stamp on the package saying it has passed the test of the melamine limited value. While substandard products will be sealed up and disposed of safely.

Dairy products that are found to be safe will be marked with a stamp which is a green circle, two centimeters in diameter.

Currently the inspections are still in process, and the results are not published, hence there will not yet be products with this stamp on the market.
