What do you think of the melamine issue? Moreover this is a general thread on the Chinese dairy products and its consumers so anything on it can be discussed and posted.
The controversy continues in China over infant milk formula tainted with the industrial chemical melamine that has killed four babies and sickened thousands of Chinese children.
In September 2008, several companies were implicated in a scandal involving milk and infant formula which had been adulterated with melamine. By 22 September, nearly 53,000 illnesses, over 12,800 hospitalisations, and four infant deaths had been reported, caused by kidney stones and other renal failure. The chemical appeared to have been added to milk in order to cause it to appear to have a higher protein content.
Melamine has been found in products produced by 21 other companies, including Sanlu, Mengniu, Yili, and Yashili
Melamine may have been added to fool government quality tests after water was added to fraudulently increase the milk's volume, since melamine will cause a false increase in the measurement of protein by increasing the nitrogen levels in the milk. Officials estimate that about 20 percent of the dairy companies tested in China sell products tainted with melamine.

o.o is the breast milk also contaminated?
Wtf? Someone here is using my username on other sites.
Old news is old.
I am your GOD.
they were trying to make it look like there was more protein in it.
the chemical they used shows high protein and it's cheaper than actual protein.

That's what you get from a country that has companies that focus more on the income than the well-being of its customers.
You know how corrupted some chinese officials and managers are, all they care about is money. I swear I'll be surprised if some some human made disaster doesnt occur there first and spread through the world.
yikes.....i just barely found out about this....thats hairy scary.....makes me not want to eat
you know sometimes i forget that i have like a twitter account...hahahaha
