US: Hershey assurance over milk supplies
Hershey, the US confectionery giant, has moved to assure consumers it has never purchased milk from China.
The company said yesterday (29 September) that consumer safety and product quality are its "top priorities" and all products use the "highest-quality ingredients and are safe to consume".
This includes Cadbury products manufactured and distributed in the US by Hershey, the company added.
