Baby powdered milk shortage in Hong Kong

As I come back from Hong Kong, I witnessed the boom of powdered milk for babies.
It is sold everywhere in supermarkets, pharmacies...

Chinese tourists from mainland China carry some back home. At Hong Kong powdered milk same as most imported products is not taxed! It is therefore interesting to shop in Hong Kong for imported products: baby milk, wine, luxury bags...

With the powered baby milk scandale, the demand for imported powdered milk increased and consequently the traffic...
But the Hong Kong smuggler went too far this time! No powedered milk could be found in Hong Kong! And Hong Kong babies suffered from this shortage!
After this a new regulation limits to 1,8kg the quantity of milk that one personn can carry to mainland China.
