Products made with tainted Chinese milk have been pulled off shelves worldwide in a widening health scandal after the industrial chemical melamine was found in milk and milk formula.

Some 60 countries have now banned or recalled certain Chinese dairy products, including baby formulas and chocolates, because of contamination with melamine. That chemical can produce crystals that block tiny tubes in the kidneys, interfering with the production of urine and damaging the organ.

Melamine is the same chemical that contaminated pet food last year [2007] and killed many cats and dogs. As we warned then, the appearance of a problem in pet food could signal a looming problem for our food supply too. (Marion Nestle, PhD, a New York University food expert who has an informative blog that's covered melamine, recently wrote a book called "The Chihuahua in the Coal Mine" about just that.)

According to the report, nitrogen-rich melamine scrap is routinely ground into powder and mixed into low-grade wheat, corn, soybean or other proteins to inflate the protein analysis of animal feed. Such melamine powder has been called "fake protein" and is used to deceive animal farmers into thinking they are buying feed that provides higher nutrition value.

The practice is widespread in China. For years many animal feed sellers have been able to cheat buyers by blending a powdered form of the scrap into feed with little regulatory supervision, according to interviews with melamine scrap traders and agricultural workers here, described in the report.

In China's melamine-tainted milk scandal, melamine as a nitrogen-rich substance is illegally added to baby formula in order to increase the apparent protein content and pass the quality tests, though the chemical has no nutritional value.
