When Counterfeits Attack

Last night on 60 Minutes: The World's Greatest Fakes, discussing China as "the undisputed capital of counterfeiting." The story had this utterly chilling conclusion:

Since this report last January, dozens of children from one eastern Chinese city died after being fed counterfeit baby formula. Thousands of boxes of counterfeit formula have been discovered.

More on the arrests of those charged with making or selling the fake formula, which apparently has led to at least some 50-60 malnutrition deaths.
