Ice cream is contaminated with Covid-19 in China

Ice cream has tested positive for coronavirus in China and left health authorities scrambling to trace people at risk of infection.

Three samples of locally produced ice cream were found to be contaminated in the Tianjin municipality, in the north east of the country.

Some 4,836 boxes have been identified as contaminated by the Tianjin Daqiaodao Food Company, of which 2,089 have now been sealed in storage.

A further 1,812 was dispatched to other provinces and 935 entered the local market but only 65 were sold, according to China Daily.

Shoppers who picked up one of the 450g boxes - using milk poweder from Ukraine and whey from New Zealand - were urged by health officials to record their movements so potential infections could be tracked.

The 1,662 company employees have been ordered into self-isolation and underwent testing yesterday.
