Mengniu, China's biggest milk producer, said it has destroyed a batch of milk after it was discovered to have excessive levels of a cancer-causing toxin, in another safety scare for the country's dairy industry. Mengniu said in a statement seen on its website Monday, Dec. 26, 2011, that the problem was discovered before the milk tainted with high levels of aflatoxin was sold to the public.
