1、      注意!新西兰恒天然公司乳制品验出含菌1000吨受污染产品将回收,中国要求进口商立即回收产品。(联合早报)

新西兰恒天然的婴儿配方奶粉与运动饮料使用的部分原料,检验出含有可引发肉毒杆菌中毒(botulism)的梭狀芽孢杆菌,若情况严重可能致命。

恒天然(Fonterra)是全球最大乳制品出口商,该公司周六发表声明说,在新西兰制造的三批浓缩乳清蛋白,品质出现问题。公司已经通知了八大客户,并建议他们在必要的情况下回收产品,但恒天然没有透露这些客户的名称。

新西兰原产工业部在同一天指出,这次污染事件涉及的产品包括婴儿奶粉配方、运动饮料、蛋白饮料等。受影响的除了新西兰,也包括中国、澳大利亚、泰国、马来西亚、越南、沙特阿拉伯。

原产工业部指出,受污染的浓缩乳清蛋白,同其他原料混合制成的消费品运销全世界,这些乳制品的共计约1000吨。

在污染事件公布后,七个国家料会进行大回收。新西兰一家公司已扣住五批货,中国也要求进口商立即回收产品。

恒天然总裁史毕根斯表示,公司将尽快取得受影响产品的信息,然后从超市下架。消费者购买了产品可退货。

据美国疾病控制与预防中心,肉毒中毒虽罕见,但严重者或因神经型食物中毒而致命。

不过,恒天然公司在声明中指出,到目前为止并没有接到因浓缩乳清蛋白污染而生病的报告。公司生产的鲜奶、酸奶、乳酪、抹酱、超高温UHT牛奶产品,也没有存在安全疑虑。

乳制品占新西兰国内生产总值的7%以上,是国家主要经济支柱之一。新西兰95%的牛奶是供出口,其中大部分由恒天然加工。恒天然也是世界第四大乳制品企业,年收入大约是160亿美元。

New York Times Selling The Boston Globe

The New York Times Company announced Wednesday that it is selling the Boston Globe.

Bloomberg was the first to report the news that the company is seeking to unload its biggest asset besides the New York Times itself. The Times issued a press release shortly after, saying that it has partnered with Evercore Partners to find a suitable buyer for the Globe and the other properties in its New England Media Group.

"Given the differences between these businesses and The New York Times, we believe that a sale is in the best long-term interests of these properties and the employees who work for them as well as in the best interests of our shareholders," Times CEO Mark Thompson said in a statement.

The Times bought the Globe for $1.1 billion in 1993 — a sign of just how different the media landscape was two decades ago. The entire company now has $955 million in cash on hand. It will certainly not be able to attract that kind of price for the paper today; a Wall Street Journal piece in early 2012 speculated that the Globe could be had for about $200 million.

The company has spent the last year or so shedding many of its other business. It sold its regional papers in late 2011, and the About.com site in 2012. In addition, it has recently enacted layoffs at the Times.

The Times had previously flirted with selling the Globe in 2009, but ultimately decided against it. The Globe, the Times said, was on track to lose $85 million that year.
