Sri Lanka has lifted a temporary ban on the sale of some Anchor milk powder shipments from New Zealand after local tests showed it did not cause illness in children.
The Sri Lankan government last week halted the sale and distribution of Anchor powder from three batches after some children fell ill, Reuters reported.
Fonterra said at the time that independent investigations into the three batches, with a total weight of 76 tonnes, proved they were safe.
Today Sri Lanka's director general of health said his own tests were also negative.
Sri Lanka imports more than $200 million of milk powder from New Zealand annually.
