Commissioner Mike Bush is expected to make an announcement on the investigation at 1pm.

On November 27 last year Fonterra and Federated Farmers received letters threatening to contaminate infant formula with 1080 poison.

The letter said the formula would be poisoned if New Zealand didn't stop using the 1080 poison for pest control by the end of March this year.

Infant formula was pulled from the shelves of supermarket and held behind counters to prevent any contamination in shops.
