Sanlu, the company whose baby formula is believed to have sickened most of the ill infants, is now accused of covering up the problem for months, along with local government officials.
China's state-owned Xinhua news agency has reported that Sanlu began receiving complaints about sick infants as far back as December 2007. According to Xinhua, Sanlu didn't begin testing for melamine until June 2008.
