China's Health Ministry is warning that its investigation into contaminated milk powder may uncover additional cases of babies who have fallen ill from the tainted product. The official Xinhua News Agency on Tuesday quoted the ministry as saying medical agencies were prepared for additional cases.

The company at the heart of the problem, Sanlu Group Co., has apologized for its contaminated milk powder, which has been linked to the deaths of two infants and sickened more than 1,200 others in a widening food scandal.
