Beijing, Jul 24: Border quarantine authorities in central China's Hunan Province have seized more than 400 kg of baby milk formula produced in areas close to the site of Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant.

Although no excessive radioactive material was found in the formula, it was still sent back to Japan as China has banned imports of food and agricultural products from regions affected by the nuclear leak, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.

The quarantine authorities said today that they found the milk formula in parcels mailed to Hunan between July 1 and July 20.

This was the province's biggest seizure of banned Japanese food.
