Sri Lanka may the latest country to be spooked about the safety of New Zealand's milk.

A Sri Lankan media outlet is reporting that government officials last week confirmed they will start sending milk powder samples overseas to test for traces of the agrichemical DCD or dicyandiamide.

A lead story in the Nation newspaper is headlined "Hazardous milk powder sneaks into Sri Lankan market".
