New Zealand police arrest man over infant formula contamination threat

New Zealand police said on Tuesday (Oct 13) they had arrested a 60-year-old businessman suspected of threatening to contaminate infant formula in New Zealand, the world's largest dairy exporter, and charged the man with two counts of criminal blackmail.

The man was charged in an Auckland court after an 11-month investigation, police told reporters. Police and New Zealand's agricultural industry have stressed that the country's dairy products and infant formula are safe.

Letters sent to the national farmers' group and dairy giant Fonterra last November, accompanied by packages of infant formula laced with the pesticide 1080, demanded that the use of the toxic pesticide be stopped by the end of March.
