The health commission of Shaanxi province in northwestern China released a statement on Tuesday confirming receipt of the National Health Commission's notice, and added that it would trace the batch for retesting.

A batch of over 12,000 human blood plasma has been found contaminated with HIV in China and the government has launched a probe into the latest medical scandal in the country.

According to Shanghai Xinxing's website, the company was established in August 2000 by its parent company, the state-run Xinxing Group, which is directly under the supervision of China's State Council, a cabinet-like authority.

No confirmed cases of patients contracting HIV from infected plasma have been reported.

The ABC approached the China Meheco Group and various government bodies for clarification but was not able to receive a response - most government offices and companies are now closed in China due to Lunar New Year public holiday. Wang suspects that the contamination came from blood-plasma donors. According to China's Ministry of Health, over 40 percent of people who gave blood at illegal centers - which numbered in the hundreds - became infected with HIV.

"The root of AIDS in China was the plasma market", Gao Yaojie, a doctor who helped uncover the cause of the epidemic, told the New York Times in a 2016 interview.
