I posted this in GAL, though it’s probably much more relevant here. Remember the melamine deal a while back. Well, as I’ve long suspected, the Chinese have been putting melamine into milk and protein powder:
SHIJIAZHUANG, China - China’s food safety crisis widened Friday after the industrial chemical melamine was found in milk produced by three of the country’s leading dairy companies ï¿½?? prompting stores, including Starbucks, to yank milk from their shelves.
But the Food and Drug Administration said it is stepping up inspections at ports as a precaution. Inspectors will be sampling bulk shipments of food ingredients from Asia that are derived from milk, such as milk powder and whey powder.
The FDA also plans to issue a consumer alert warning people not to buy milk products from China on the Internet.
