Fonterra boss: We deeply apologise
The boss of New Zealand dairy firm Fonterra has apologised for the distress caused to parents because of a scare over contaminated products.
Theo Spierings was speaking in China after it emerged on Saturday that batches of whey protein contained bacteria that can cause botulism.
Contaminated products, including infant formula, were exported to a number of countries, including China.
Mr Spierings said: "Our highest priority, and that's what we are focused on right now, is to ensure the safety of the public."
