The China Food and Drug Administration said last week that stores and supermarkets should first compensate consumers for quality problems with infant formula milk powder, and then ask their suppliers or infant formula makers to compensate them for their loss.

This means consumers will be able to get compensation directly from the store that sold them the formula, instead of going to the formula maker for compensation.

The administration also asked food and drug authorities at the provincial level to heighten unannounced inspections on the quality of infant formula.
