A young orangutan is checked for kidney stones at an animal hospital in Hangzhou, in east China’s Zhejiang province, Wednesday, Sept. 24, 2008. A lion cub and two baby orangutans from the Hangzhou Safari Park were found to have kidney stones after zoo workers fed them Sanlu brand milk powder for more than a year.

The tainted milk powder was made by the Sanlu-Fonterra joint venture operation, which has sickend at least 54,000 infants in China killing four. [The exact number of the dead infants appears to be a state secret.]

“The milk powder crisis made us very worried about the health situation of baby animals,” Ju Lijia, the animal park’s spokeperson reportedly said. “We stopped feeding with Sanlu after it was found to be tainted.”

So far, the three animals are the only ones diagnosed with kidney stones, Ju said. (Source)
