Authorities are double checking all dairy products on the shelves in China, starting this month. This is the country's latest move to enforce safety standards in the industry. All of the nation's dairy firms and baby formula producers are required to apply for new certificates, after a series of inspections.

More than one-third of China's dairy companies will be shut down, after failing to meet the necessary standards. Under the new regulations, all dairy makers must own equipment that can monitor vitamin and protein levels, as well as detect illegal additives like melamine.

Most small producers have been forced out of the market, as they were unable to afford the testing equipment, or related facilities.
